Sunday Dinner Eye Of Round
My next several posts are going to be all from the same meal (I have already posted the salad dressing and the dessert!).
This was one of our “fancier” meals growing up and when Mama made it, our busy teenage worlds stopped so we could all sit down at the table.
When I was younger, one of the best restaurants in Huntsville, Alabama was The Fogcutter. I remember one evening I had plans to go there on a date when I found out Mama was making her Eye Of Round meal for supper that night. I actually called my date, had him cancel the reservations, and invited him to eat at our house instead!
This ingredient list is easy to memorize: eye of round roast, and coarse ground black pepper.
Generously sprinkle pepper on your roast.
Until it looks like this. There, you’ve prepared your roast!
Now, stick this in an oven preheated to 500 degrees.
Wanna see my new favorite thing?
My mother always used an electric knife to slice her eye of round.
I’ve never owned an electric knife and I had always assumed, whenever I thought about getting one, that they would be expensive. Enter my new favorite company, Hamilton Beach.
I got this electric knife with a really nice carrying case, for less than twenty dollars!!!
IT IS SO AWESOME! Eye of round is a tender roast, but difficult to cut. In the past, I have always used one of my knives and done it by hand. Doing this, though, yields thick slices that look somewhat “hacked”. I was never able to get the gorgeous thin slices like my mother did.
WELL, CHECK THIS BABY OUT!!
It took me a second or two to do each slice, that’s all! I can’t wait to make a ham now that I have this! I love that it has a storage case so it doesn’t get lost in my utensil drawer. Did I mention that the blades are dishwasher safe? Nope, Hamilton Beach did not pay me or in any way sponsor this post! They are also the ones who make my awesome 3 in 1 slow cooker and I have another AWESOME Hamilton Beach innovative product that I am going to be writing about soon. They are just nice people who make great products that us normal folks can actually afford. Okay, so basically, I love my electric knife!
And you’ll love this Eye Of Round!!
