Red Wine Marinated Rib Eye Roast Recipe


Over the past 15 years of marriage, we have always had a traditional Italian Christmas dinner with fish on Christmas Eve, and pasta on Christmas Day. We wanted to try something different this year, and for the first time we made a roast for Christmas. We got a beautiful Rib Eye Roast at Costco, and it was a deliciously tender dinner.


This recipe is not only good for a holiday meal, but any special occasion. It took about 45 minutes to prepare the roast, and it was done in just a couple of hours. Your guests will love every bite of this roast when served at your next dinner party.


  • 4-5 pound Rib Eye Roast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup of red wine
  • 1 Tbl. dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbl. worchester sauce
  • 2 Springs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 spring of thyme
  • 2 Tbl. of minced garlic


We began by marinated the roast overnight. (I used the Reynold’s Oven Turkey Bags)

  1. Cover the roast with salt and pepper before putting it into the bag to marinate
  2. In a bowl mix the following ingredients well; red wine, dijon mustard, brown sugar, worchester sauce, rosemary, thyme and garlic.
  3. Then add the marinate to the bag over the roast, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  5. Take the roast out of the bag, and place in a baking dish.
  6. Pour the remaining marinade over the roast
  7. Cover with foil
  8. Bake for 1 1/2 -2 hours
  9. During the last 1/2 hour, remove the foil


Check the roast throughout the cooking process to ensure it is at the correct temperature. For a medium roast the temperature should be 160, and 170 for a well done roast.
