It's best to use a meat thermometer. 135 is pretty much medium rare.

If you don't have a meat thermometer it's much harder to cook something to specific doneness. It depends on how big the roast is and what shape.

How many pounds?

Since you are searing it off first, check it after 20 min. Make sure the thermometer goes into the center of the roast.

Take it out at 130 and let it sit for 10 minutes or so before you cut it.
