4- to 6 -lb beef ribeye roast, bone-in
½ C dijon-style mustard
2⅓ C cheese and garlic or Caesar croutons, finely crushed (about 1¼ C crumbs),divided
1½ lbs green beans, trimmed
1 Tbsp olive oii
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread mustard evenly over all surfaces of beef roast. Press 1 cup crouton crumbs evenly onto roast over mustard.
Place roast, fat side up, 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 350-degree oven 1¾ to 2 hours for medium rare; 2 to 2¼ hours for medium doneness.
Meanwhile, toss green beans with oil on metal baking sheet. Add remaining ¼ cup crouton crumbs; toss to coat. Roast in oven with beef roast 30 minutes.
Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135 degrees for medium rare; 150 degrees for medium. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees; continue roasting green beans 10 to 20 minutes or until tender and starting to brown.
Transfer roast to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10 to 15 degrees to reach 140 degrees for medium rare; 160 degrees for medium.)
Carve roast into slices. Season beef and green beans with salt and pepper, as desired.
