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.

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.
