Time to Cook
Step 1Heat oven to 325°F. Combine seasoning ingredients; press evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast.
Step 2Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of beef, not resting in fat. Do not add water or cover. Roast in 325°F oven 2 to 2-1/4 hours for medium-rare , 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours for medium doneness.
Step 3Meanwhile drain beans, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. Place beans, 2 tablespoons reserved liquid, 2 tablespoons oil and garlic in a food processor. Cover; process until smooth. Add rosemary, salt and pepper. Cover; pulse on and off until well blended. Cover; refrigerate until ready to use. Refrigerate remaining 2 tablespoons bean liquid.
Step 4Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135°F for medium-rare, 150°F for medium. Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand, covered, 15 to 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium-rare, 160°F for medium.)
Step 5Just before serving, heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes; cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until skins begin to split. Add arugula; remove from heat. Toss to coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Add bean mixture to skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until just heated through, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons remaining bean liquid as necessary for desired consistency.
Step 6Carve roast into thin slices. Serve with bean and arugula mixtures. Garnish with cheese, if desired.
