ISO Eye of Round Steak Recipes

Got 6 lean little steaks that were reduced for quick sale. I'll be freezing them, but then what? They're not grilling material AFAIK.

I think they would make nice fajitas. Or smothered steak, browned and simmered for a long time with lots of onions and onion gravy.

My thoughts too. Eye round IMHO, is not for grilling.

Thanks, guys. I was thinking slow cooker or oven braising too.

I have added some of those little eye of round to beef short ribs that I've braised to add more meat to the mix...it was good!

Chicken Fried Steak (if they're thin enough that is) with oodles of brown gravy and caramelized onions, a huge scoop of rice under it all and maybe some sort of dark leafy green on the side to at least look health-ful, sounds good to me

I buy eye of round quite often. I use it in stews (Norwegian Sailor Stew comes to mind, as does the venison-ale stew I make--I think I've posted both recipes and Whiskadoodle tweaked the Norwegian Sailor Stew recipe)--both of these stews contain beer/ale. You could marinate the meat overnight in a marinade containing beer, wine, or brandy. You could also marinate the meat in black tea to tenderize it.

Check out this site:


This is one of my favorites (the brandy tenderizes the meat):

Brandied Beef - Recipe - Cooks.com

With homemade beef stock it is fantastic. I think my recipe is in one of the Bon Appetit cookbooks I have, but this sounds identical, except the title was Braised Beef with Orange or something like that. I have used round steak with the fat removed, can't think why eye of round wouldn't work.

You could always pound them out real thin, marinade and use for carpaccio or slice and cook real fast for steak sammies.
