Eye of Round

Recommended Posts

I read a lot of hate for the eye of round, and I know my tastes are more simple than most. It was recently driven home with my Fillet Mignons in the Akorn thread.

 

My love for the eye of round probably stems back to my childhood. Eye of round steaks are the only steaks I prefer fried. Cast iron skillet or flat top grill, my Mother called them breakfast steaks and to this day are my favorite with hashbrown's and toast, (I don't care for eggs). I also like them for steak sandwiches.

 

I always cut my own from a primal now, pound them slightly with the textured end of a meat hammer, salt and pepper only,, sometimes a couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce.

 

Am I alone in the world with this. My sister is not the carnivore I am and doesn't like them. Mom never did anything to tenderize or used Worcestershire sauce. Someone else must do something with them, because the sell more than I buy. I smoke the roast once in a while, but prefer them for quick steaks. So far, better than Fillet Mignon, but that is just me.

I've never done them that way before.  I usually use it for beef jerky. I also season it then vacuum sealer it in a bag and sous vide the whole thing.  Let it cool then after a night in the refrigerator I slice it on a meat slicer to make sandwich meat.
