Homemade Buttery Flaky Pie Crust

Homemade Pie Crust made with few simple ingredients, using flour, butter, shortening, and salt.  This recipe is so forgiving that you will never use another recipe again. Homemade Pie Crust can seem daunting if you have never made it.  At least that is how I felt the first time I wanted to make a pie using homemade crust.   I want to promise you that it gets easier and more comfortable the more you make the homemade.  As my mother used to say, "practice makes perfect."   For years I use to make my homemade pie crust with just shortening and still do occasionally, but I find the added butter gives an excellent rich taste to the pie crust.

Perfectly Cooked Eye Of Round Roast

Perfectly Cooked Eye of Round Roast, tender round roast generously sprinkled with a mixture of salt and pepper, forming a crust to hold in all the juices.  The roast is the star of the recipe, so no other ingredients are necessary to create the most succulent meat. Eye of round roast is a lean, inexpensive cut that comes from the hip and hind legs.  Often sold as a roast, steaks for marinating, and referred to the round when buying ground round hamburger.   I definitely recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure not overcooking the eye of round roast.  Overcooking the roast past medium-well will result in the meat being tough.
