Fail Safe Sunday Dinner Eye of Round Roast

Renée G.


If you figure your timing just right, you can expect this to be ready to serve just in time for Sunday Dinner.

NOTE: I had a bit of difficulty with this method initially because oven temperatures vary. So, periodically you should check your oven’s actual temperature with an oven thermometer to be sure it actually registers what your setting says it is.
