PERFECT EYE OF ROUND ROAST

PERFECT EYE OF ROUND ROAST

I love making roasts and when I came across this cut on special at the grocery store, I couldn't resist. Not wanting to shy away from a challenge, I began researching how to this beast. The internet seemed to be unified in this method, so I thought I'd give it a shot. You start with a screaming hot oven and then you turn it off! Sounds crazy? Well, it works, so don't be afraid!

Here's what you'll need

  • 2 pound eye of round roast
  • 2 tbsp whole coriander
  • 2 tbsp whole cumin
  • 2 tbsp whole mustard seed
  • 2 tbsp whole fennel

  1. preheat a 500° oven
