This rib roast is rubbed with a punchy mixture of rosemary, anchovies, and garlic. The reverse sear (starting low and slow, finishing hot and fast!) is excellent when cooking large cuts of meat for a crowd, not only for its foolproof results, but because it’s the ultimate do-ahead. Slow-roast it up to two hours before guests arrive, then finish in a hot oven at the last minute. This is the stunning main course from Alison Roman’s “Steak House Night in America” menu, alongside: Martini Bar, Baked Potatoes Deluxe, The Greatest Creamed Greens, and Upside-Down Apricot Tart.
