Eye of round is one of the leanest and relatively inexpensive cuts of beef available. Because eye of round is so lean, the best way to cook it is low-temperature roasting. Last night I purchased a 5lb. cut of eye of round and cooked it in my beloved crock pot overnight. Below is the recipe and nutritional information.
5lb. Eye of Round Roast
1/2 Diced Green Pepper
1/2 cup of Diced Onion
2 tablespoons of Minced Garlic
1 tablespoon of Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb Seasoning
Place onions, peppers, and 1 tablespoon of garlic in the bottom of the crock pot.
Trim of all visible fat on the roast.
Rub the roast with Mrs. Dash and remaining garlic.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
