Eye Of Round Roast

Growing up, every Sunday my mom would make an eye of round roast for dinner. There was nothing special about her roast beef recipe. She would simply add onions, water and an eye of round roast into a crockpot and that was it.

As I got older I realized my mother’s roast beef recipe was on the bland side. As I have gotten older and learned that you can add flavor to oven roast beef!

Gravy For Roast Beef

One day I made dinner for my family. They are used to bland foods, so to introduce flavor I had to be creative. I found a gravy for roast beef off the back of a Wishbone salad dressing bottle.

My family loved the tanginess of the gravy for roast beef I had made. I told my mom the secret ingredient was Italian dressing. It shocked her, but she asked me to write the recipe out, it was so tasty and the best eye of round roast they had had.

Oven Roast Beef

I could have made this roast beef recipe in a crockpot like my mother does, instead, I decided to make it as a roast beef recipe. I really wanted to bake that gravy for roast beef into the eye of round roast. I think this as an oven roast beef was a wonderful idea because the flavor was amazing.


How To Cook Roast Beef

How to cook roast beef so that it is tender? There are many ways to cook roast beef:

  • Physically tenderize the meat with tenderizer or with a meat mallet
  • Marinades
  • Let the meat come to room temperature before cooking it
  • Slow cooking
  • Letting your meat rest after cooking
  • Slice against the grain

Personally I like marinades. And gravy for roast beef is a marinade. Plus slow-roasting an oven roast beef is also a good way to have tender roast beef.
