Is eye round roast a good cut of beef?
An eye of round is a lean but flavorful cut that comes from the “round” or hindquarters of the cow. This area gets a lot of movement so the beef is leaner and less tender than more expensive cuts of beef. This cut is also the best choice for my family’s favorite Deli Style Roast Beef.

Why is my eye round roast tough?
Cooked right, the eye of round can go from tough to tender. Due to the location of the eye of round, on the rear leg of the cow, it’s a super lean cut of meat lacking in much fat. Because of this, the eye of round can dry out easily, especially when cooking with a dry heat method, like grilling and roasting.
How do I cook a beef roast without drying it out?
Here’s what I do: I put a rack in the bottom of a roasting pan. Then I place the roast (no rubs or seasonings) on the rack and cover it with a lid. I put it in the oven at 400° for 15 or 20 minutes, then turn it down to 325° and roast for 30 minutes per pound. All it does is end up tough, chewy, and well-done.
How do you tenderize eye of round?
Eye of round can be tough and lean, which doesn’t make it the ideal candidate for roast beef, but a short sear in super-hot heat followed by a long rest in a closed oven is guaranteed to get you a tender, juicy roast every single time. Make sure to slice very thinly across the grain for best results.
