Eye Round Roast Recipes??
Does anyone have recipes for an eye round roast? I've never prepared one before and am looking for some ideas. Thanks!!!
Tritto on the CI method, no more than medium rare, unless you're braising it, and I top it with a special gremolata right before roasting is done, fresh thyme, rosemary, flat parsley, garlic and lemon zest, minced and blended; a little jus on the side and call me for dinner.
Thinly sliced leftovers make good roast beef sandwiches.
1 cup plum preserves
1 cup red wine
1/4 cup worschechire
1/4 cup soy sauce
5 garlic cloves chopped
Mix all ingredients and put into large Ziploc bag and add the roast. Marinate at least 3 hours, or overnight. Remove meat and roast in oven at 375 degrees until internal temp is 105-115 (depending on how done you like your beef)
While the meat is cooking, pour marinade through a strainer into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer until thick like a syrup. Ladel the sauce over sliced beef. Let me know how it turns out!
My wife's Argentinean Italian grandmothers & mother make 'estofado' with eye round...
They brown the whole roast on all sides in a hot cast iron pan and then they throw it in a large pot with sauteed aromatics and they build a spaghetti sauce on top of it...
After simmeing for a few hours the meat softens and the sauce picks up its meaty essence...
They'll use the sauce for a bold pasta like Fusilli Longhi, Rotini, Wagon Wheels, etc, with grated cheese--- and they'll slice up the meat and serve it separately topped with some sauce and grated cheese...
It's a scene man...
