Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Season the meat with salt, pepper and any other dry spices and herbs you desire.
Place meat on a roasting rack with the bone ends pointing upward.
Roast until the desired doneness level is reached using a meat thermometer to check as follows:
Pull the meat out five degrees before your target doneness and let the meat rest for about ten minutes as it will carry over cook about five more degrees as it rests.
Rare: 120 degrees
(Please ensure your thermometer is calibrated before temperature checking is done. it should show 212 degrees when immersed halfway up the stem into boiling water and 32 degrees when plunged into ice water. )
*Note: USDA recommends cooking beef to 145 degrees for the safest consumption.
