Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
While your oven preheats remove your roast from the fridge.
Next take 4-5 cloves of garlic and slice them into thin slivers.
Then take the tip of a sharp knife and insert it into roast. Making slits just big enough for the slivers of garlic. Then using your fingers, insert the garlic slivers into the roast.
Next combine the crushed garlic, salt, black pepper, rosemary and thyme. Then rub it all over the outside of the roast. Then place the roast onto a sheet pan with a rack on it. I find that a cooling rack works perfectly.
When the oven is preheated, place the standing rib roast into the oven for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, reduce the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees remove from the oven, lightly cover with foil and let the meat rest for 15-20 minutes before carving.
