Want an impressive standing rib roast without the hassle and worry of over- or under-cooking? This prime rib turns out perfectly every time thanks to the Anova Precision Oven’s sous vide mode and the use of a probe to read internal temperature. These recipe guidelines will work no matter the size of your roast—just make sure it isn’t too big to fit in the oven!
