Easy Prime Rib Roast

I have been craving prime rib and au jus for a few weeks now and finally was able to find a roast that I could make work.  (It doesn't appear that thick rib roasts are in season right now haha).  Being a Monday and after daylight saving time (which can suck it in the sleep department by the way) I found myself short on time to actually slow roast this.  I decided to brown it in a frying pan first and then stick it in the slow cooker to finish it off making it tender and juicy. 

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 lb Prime Rib Roast
Seasoning (Brown Sugar Bourbon, Garlic Powder, Mediterranean Spiced Sea Salt)
Au Jus Sauce Packet

Add the oil into a skillet.  Add the Roast and season it on both side.  Cook on medium high until both sides are browned (About 8 minutes per side).  Turn slow cooker on to high and add roast.  Mix the au jus packet with 1 Cup Water and pour over the roast.  Cook on high for about 40 minutes (you do not want to over-cook it on high or your meat will not be as tender.)  Turn cooker down to low and cook for another 45 minutes or until done to your liking.  At this point it was a good medium rare/medium.  Serve by spooning au jus or serving with a side cup of au just spooned out of the slow cooker.  Enjoy!

Season roast and cook in skillet
Cook for about 8minutes a side or until you are starting to brown towards the middle
Move to the slow cooker and pour the au jus sauce on top
Serve & Enjoy!
