Grass fed beef is more healthy for you, but grain fed beef (especially a lean cut like eye round) has more fat content and therefore tends to be more tender and flavorful. I realize eye round is lean to begin with. Maybe it was grain fed seeing as how its $3.99 lb.
I'm gonna try msmofet's method. I like the way msmofet's roast has a gradual transition from the outer doneness to center redness. Mine cooked up with too distinct a band of doneness surrounding the center redness, no gradualness.
