The eye of round has a reputation for being a bit of a tough cut. And I’ll be frank: my previous experiences with cuts from the round didn’t inspire me to sing “Love Me Tender.” The Roast Perfect app changed all that!
Certified Angus Beef ® brand cuts are always extremely flavorful. But I wondered, “Could a cut from the round also be juicy and tender?” I was skeptical, and shame on me! The simple recipe, and the Roast Perfect app’s built-in timers for searing, roasting and resting to medium-rare doneness made the steps easy to follow. I cut this aromatic roast against the grain into thin slices. The result? Absolutely delicious! Savory Herb Eye of Round Roast is tasty, juicy and yes, tender. It will be for you, too — if you remember two important tips for success:
- Always start with the best beef — Certified Angus Beef ® brand cuts
