1. Heat the oven at 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Before that roast must be equal to the room temperature. Spread some amount of olive oil, salt and pepper on it. Now insert the meat thermometer, this is why we prefer boneless prime rib because bones can create problems sometimes. For your convenience, make a hole to put thermometer in it.

2. After that, put the roast in the roasting pan in such a way that fat side will be up and the rib side will be in the down side.

3. The complete cooking time will depend on the size of the roast, as you have 10 pounds of roast then it will take 2-2.30 hrs, 13-15 min for the rare (size of meat), 15-17 min for the medium rare in roasting or it will depend on the type of your oven. Flat roast obviously take less time in comparison to thicker one.

4. Leave the roast in the temperature of 115-120 degree F (temperature shown in meat thermometer) for rare one and medium rare temperature will be 125-135.

5. When the set temperature is over, take out from the oven and leave it for 20 min and cover it with aluminum foil.

6. Cut the meat strings.

7. Pour some amount of dripping into a pan maximum can be 2 tablespoons. Put it onto stove on medium high heat, take 2 tablespoons of corn starch into a bowl and mix it with minimum amount of water to make thick paste.

8. Pour the paste into a pan and mix it with dripping. Stir with spatula until it will convert into thick paste. Then, add some amount of water and cream or milk (2 cups). For more taste you can add kosher salt.

9. Take the whole mixture into a bowl or into a some flat thing, dip the meat strings into it. And decorate it with the leaves of thyme, rosemary and the cloves of garlic.
