Perfect Eye of Round Roast Beef

This method produces a perfect roast beef every time, that is medium, and even rarer in the center, and pleases all of our tastes. The key is to use an eye of round roast (or any well-rounded and even-shaped roast).

While there are not enough pan drippings to make gravy, the juices make a lovely au jus to accompany the beef.

This works for any size roast and couldn't be easier.
