Ingredients

    3-4 lb. Eye of Round Roast
    Dry Rub seasonings (purchase any brand)
    (I make my own Season Salt and rub with that.)
    2 Tblsp. A. P. Flour
    Oven roasting Bag

Directions

Wipe off meat with damp paper towel. Rub with your favorite rub. Place in Oven Bag. Dust bag and roast with the flour (so bag won't explode)
Preheat oven to 500 F. (Yes 500!) Place roast in roasting pan and into hot oven. Set Timer for 5 minutes (yes 5 min.) per lb. 15 to 20 min roasting time is for a 3-4 lb. roast. Add 5 min. for each additional lb. of meat. Turn oven off. DO NOT open door!!
LEAVE IN OVEN FOR ONE HOUR - (1) hour.
Remove, and allow to rest for 10 min. Save juices from bag. (If desired - for those not counting calories, a delicious gravy can be made from the meat juices.) Slice roast thinly and serve, using au 'jus (or gravy), over the potatoes or rice, if desired. Moist and tender when thinly sliced.......Yummm!
You'll want to make this one again......... and again!

  • This is not a chuck roast. Do not put it in your crock pot, and for heaven's sake don't drown it in a bunch of water! It is meant to be dry roasted, sliced thin, and pink in the middle. If you don't like medium rare/rare beef, this is not your recipe. - 4/3/14

  • I cook the roast for 7 min. a lb. and then leave in the oven for 2 1/2 hrs. - roast is cool though when it comes out, but it's very tender and cooked perfectly medium rare. - 12/4/12

    Well, I tried making this recipe for early dinner today and it didn't work out at all for me. Using the directionds precisely and my roast was 2.5 lbs. also when it was done the inside measured only 120 degrees. I threw it into the corckpot with a jar of gravy and am cooking it on high for 4 hours . - 9/6/10

  • Good but I think I should have picked a different rub. Mine didn't have enough flavor. Would definitely make it again with another rub and it gets cooked pretty quick. - 5/9/10

    Next time I'll try the crock pot recipe. Mine came out tough and I followed all the directions. We had it with salad and mashed potatoes and it was still tasty even though it was tough. - 1/26/09

  • I was leary about cooking the 2.5 # eye of round roast for 13 minutes, but it worked. The middle was medium and the ends were medium well. - 9/2/08
