Really the only way to cook a rib joint. Emphasise that it MUST be at room temperature before cooking and that the resting time is essential. A simple but very effective recipe. This beef has always turned out for me to have a wonderful flavour, just like my remeberance of pre-war beef. By CapFly - 15th Oct 2012
