Remove roast when meat thermometer registers 135 degrees for medium rare; 145 degrees for medium. Tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10 degrees to 15 degrees to reach 145 degrees for medium rare; 160 degrees for medium.)
Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Add beans; cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir in rice and almonds; heat through. Carve roast; season with salt. Serve with rice.
