About eye of round
There's nothing quite like having a slowly braised roast for a Sunday night meal. When you eat roast beef with mashed potatoes or have a sliced deli roast beef sandwich, the meat comes from an eye of round. Eye of round is a primal cut of meat with suboptimal cuts consisting of top round steaks, sirloin tip roast, and bottom round roast.
Eye of round comes from the rump of the cow or steer. Because this part of the body has active muscles, eye of round tends to be lean and on the tough side unless properly cooked. Eye of round is ideal for slow-and-low cooking methods, such as pot roasts, hearty simmered stews, and corned beef. It also can be made into ground beef. If you have an eye of round roast with the bone left in, it's called a standing rump roast.
While eye of round roast is lean, it's also quite flavorful and versatile, and it's easy to make hearty family meals with this cut of meat. The flavor is similar to sirloin roast, especially when braised, simmered, or placed in a slow cooker.
Eye of round is an affordable cut for families on a budget, and the meat is quite nutritious. Nutrient values for a 3-ounce piece of eye of round include:
