The eye of round (eye round) is an extremely lean small roast cut from the Round primal between the top round, outside round and heel. It is very affordable and has good flavor, but is not very tender. It is best cooked slowly (roasted or braised) & cut very thinly across the grain. It can also be used for inexpensive steak dishes if cut thinly & thoroughly tenderized.
Applications: Roast, Braise, Thin Slices, Stew Meat, Cube Steak.
