OVEN STYLE EYE OF THE ROUND STEAK W/VEGGIES

Bought these Eye of the Round Steaks @ Sam's Club, separated them by two each & froze them, & forgot about them, till I was trying to figure what to make for dinner & decided on these.

It pleased my husband greatly because he loves BEEF ANYTHING. I figured if I cooked them in my new covered cast iron dish they would be tender & tasty. I tenderized them first with my meat mallet, because it tend to be tough if not tenderized.

The addition of the veggies & the Merlot wine created quite an awesome flavor after 3 hours of cooking in the oven. Served it with potatoes & Irish Sweet cake Bread.

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. This is the Cast Iron Pot with LID that I used to cook the Eye of the Round Steaks in.

Add the herbs and spices to a small bowl then rub between fingers to blend and mix spices together. I keep this blend ALWAYS MIXED in an empty spice jar FOR EASY AVAILABILITY.
2TENDERIZE STEAKS WITH MEAT MALLET or have it done in store before you purchase. Season Both sides of steaks with Spice seasoning Blend.
3Spray pot with non stick cooking spray, add steaks and position evenly in pot, add any remaining excess flour over steaks, will aid in making a thick gravy.
4Add carrots, onions, garlic mushrooms and Bay leaves.
5Add canned diced tomatoes, tomato paste, & tomato Juice.
6Add the Merlot. Cover with Lid and cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 3 hours or till meat is nice and tender.
7Serve with mashed Potatoes, & your Favorite Crusty Bread. I made Irish Sweet Cake Bread, and everyone was happy.
