High Temperature Eye of Round








I suspected that my cheap old apartment oven might have trouble retaining the heat after it was turned off, and covered each of the stove top burners with water-filled pots to compensate. Nonetheless, when I took the eye of round out, the oven was cool, and the roast was rare. Luckily, I like it that way.

It looks delicious. It doesn't look particularly rare to me.

How'd it taste?

I made a home-made chicken pot pie last night. Lotsa work, but, man is it good.

It tastes great (that should have been enough for three days, but there's not much left). Those are just the end slices you see there, the slices closer to the middle generated lots of bright red juice.

Jennifer, I usually lay down the bed of veggies for anything that goes in the oven (e.g. chicken thighs). In this case, the cut of meat and cooking method did not generate much gravy for them, although they ended up roasted just fine.

Oh, I understand the concept of the bed of veggies, I'm just saying, that particular bed was particularly visual... :)

That's because when it's rare, it tastes like murder!

I thought this was a recipe for actual eyes. False advertiser! I want my money back.
