Press rub mixture evenly onto all surfaces of each beef roast. Place roasts, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan(s). Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of roast, not resting in fat. Do not add water. Do not cover. Roast in 350°F oven 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours for medium rare; 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours for medium doneness.
Remove 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 15 to 20 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.) Skim fat from drippings.
