Perfectly Cooked Eye Of Round Roast

1:09 AM

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.
