  • 2 tbsp Canola oil
  • 4lb Standing rib roast (2 ribs), trimmed
  • 1/2 cup Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 14oz Low-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tbsp Flour
  • 2 tbsp Butter, or margarine
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Fresh dill, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. In a large Dutch oven heat oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add beef and cook 5-6 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, bone side down.
  4. In a small bowl combine onion, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste; rub and press evenly on all sides of beef. Pour broth into roasting pan.
  5. Roast 2 hours (135F for medium-rare) or to desired doneness. Transfer beef to a cutting board, reserving drippings in pan. Cover beef loosely with foil; let stand 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, for the gravy, skim fat from drippings (if desired); place in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and butter, whisking constantly 1 minute or until smooth. Add parsley, thyme and dill; simmer over low heat 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  7. Carve beef, and serve with gravy.
