Tired of paying $15/lb for deli roast beef?
« on: September 29, 2019, 2241 UTC »
Eye round roast is one of the cheapest, and most maligned, cuts of beef. Part of the problem is that most people cook it wrong. 

It is a very flavorful, and therefore tough, cut of meat. You can't cook it like a steak. Some stores sell "steaks" made from Eye Round cut thin. That is just wrong, and a guaranteed failure.

This Eye Round roast was on sale for $3/lb which IMHO is a steal today for beef. I roasted it in a slow oven 200F with the fan on (convection) to an inner temperature of 123F.



Then sliced thin against the grain with an electric meat slicer. Sure beats $15/lb for deli roast beef.  Dinner tight, along with some sharp cheddar cheese and three hard boiled eggs.
