Eye of Round Roast Beef

Eye of Round every one loves it but they aren’t quite sure how to cook it.  It is simple however it is all about technique. Eye of round is great when feeding a large crowd or hosting a holiday party. It is served medium to medium rare with its juices poured over it.

Our sizes of Eye of round range in small a little over 2 lbs or large getting close to 5 lbs. A 2 lb roast will easy feed 5-6 adults,  a 5 lb roast will feed 15-20 adults or more especially if it is served as an hor’s devour.   Add a tiny roll and some horseradish or fine grain mustard and 5 lb roast will feed a very large crowd. At $10 lb it is less expensive than a steak yet has a tender texture and fabulous beef flavor.  There is very little fat and no bone involved to worry about either.
