    Without a slowcooker?

    I have a 2.8 lbs roast I want to make for Christmas eve dinner and I just realized I've never made one that wasn't in a slow cooker before. So...uh.... how do I do this?

    What kind of roast is it? General rule of thumb is to do a high temp like 500 for about 15-20mins then turn it down low like 225 and cook it slow until it is done enough to your liking.

    My Mom makes it really simply.

    Just put the roast in a large baking dish or just a big foil pan. Then put large chunks of potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion. Put on some spices, usually just salt, and maybe a bay leaf, but you can put whatever you want. Then put water in, i'm not sure how much, but I guess judge based on how much meat. Then cover with foil, or if the dish has its own cover. Then cook in the oven.

    Also prime rib is best served rare to medium rare (which is generally an internal temp of 110-120).
