This herb and Dijon wet rub creates a flavorful crust over the prime rib as it cooks. This rub is perfect whether you bake, grill, rotisserie, or smoke the roast.  


  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh marjoram (chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary (chopped)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon salt (use more if roast is large)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (coarse ground)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. 

  3. Apply wet rub all over prime rib roast and cook as directed.


  • You can prepare this mixture, cover and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes before using. This allows the flavors to meld properly.
  • Store mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days after preparation.
  • Double recipe if you are cooking a very large roast, otherwise, this amount works well for a four bone rib roast.
