How to Cook Ribeye Roast in a Convection Oven, According to a Chef

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Rib roast refers to the cut of meat that comes from the primal rib, one of nine primal cuts. Prime cuts tend to have more fat, according to Mayo Clinic. Rib roast is also referred to as ribeye roast, which means the eye of the rib — this cut is boneless, per the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Joshua Resnick, the lead chef at the Institute of Culinary Education, recommends cooking a ribeye roast in a convection oven with the following ingredients, tools and methods.

Step 2: Tie Roast With Butcher's Twine

Butcher's twine is used to tie boneless roasts so they don't lose their shape. You'll need 2 to 3 feet of butcher's twine to wrap around the roast at 2-inch intervals and make a knot at the end.

Tying your roast also makes it easier to carve.

Step 3: Brush the Roast With Egg Whites

An egg wash involves brushing a mixture of egg whites and water onto certain foods before baking or roasting to add shine and a golden exterior. To do this, use a whisk to beat the egg whites until they become frothy.

Step 4: Add Seasoning

Once the roast is coated in egg whites, season the meat liberally with the mixture of salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. Press the seasonings into all sides of the roast. This will add flavor to the roast, and the salt will draw out moisture.

Step 5: Prep the Roast to Go in the Oven

Transfer the meat to a roasting pan with a rack with the bones facing down. Insert a probe thermometer into the middle of the eye of the ribeye. Set the temperature on the thermometer for the desired doneness.

For a pink, juicy ribeye, Resnick recommends setting the temperature between 130 and 135 F. For a medium-rare ribeye, set it to 140 F.

Step 6: Bake the Roast

The cooking time of a ribeye roast in a convection oven can vary depending on your oven, size of the roast and the desired doneness. Prepare for the roast to cook for 20 to 25 minutes per pound. A 10-pound ribeye roast may need to cook for 3 hours and 20 minutes.

Step 7: Allow the Roast to Rest

After the meat has reached the desired interior temperature, remove it from the oven and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Resting the meat allows the juices to redistribute into the meat. If you don't let the meat rest, it is likely to be much drier when you carve into it.

Step 8: Remove the Twine and Carve

When the meat is done resting, remove the twine. Carve the roast into thin slices using a carving knife. Resnick recommends a thin and long knife that allows for smooth strokes and prevents the meat from appearing sawed. He recommends against a serrated knife.
