Eye of Round

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The daughter called yesterday morning saying she'd be bringing the family down Sunday for dinner. Wonderful! So the Mrs suggested a Chuck Roast in the crock pot.
Alas, the grocery didn't have anything bigger than 2 1/2#, but they had Eye of Round for $3.49#! Change of meat plans...
I trimmed up a nice one, dusted with SPOG, sealed and dropped into the Sous Vide cooler at noon Saturday at 130F.





Took it out at noon today, seared (could have used a bigger pan), and snuggled it down into the potatoes, carrots and onions the Mrs already prepared.


It'll reside there on low until dinner time.
Plate pics later!

Awesome!!!:drool

 

This is what I asked anybody to do, before I got my SV.Thumbs Up---:points:

 

Now I have one & have a Plan to follow. All I need is an Eye Round on sale!!Thumbs Up

 

So you did 24 hours @ 130°. Then 4 1/2 hours in the Crock.

 

What was it like before the Crock?

Was that step needed to be Fork Tender?

 

Looks Great !!:drool

Thanks, Al. It was!

Turns out we could have gotten by with the little chuckie after all. The grandkids ate like birds. Neither one would eat carrots or potatoes. Granddaughter only wanted meat and grandson just wanted bread. I told grandson he would never get arms like Popeye if he didn't eat more but it backfired. He had never heard of Popeye. They said they were too full still from lunch, but when daughter brought out the ice cream 15 minutes later they suddenly got appetites. It was hard to keep our mouths shut. We decided next time we'll just order a pizza.

Oh well, plenty of leftovers and I got to try something else in the Sous Vide. My other granddaughter is coming tonight to stay with us a couple of days and she's not a picky eater. She'll eat whatever you put in front of her as long as it's not too spicy and tell her that grandpa made it :-)

Thanks, Bear!

In retrospect, I wish I had cut a piece off before laying in the crock just to see what it looked like, but I really think all the tenderizing was done in the sous vide. All the crock really did was keep it warm til dinner.

 

It seems Eye has been on sale a lot here (at least at Meijer). Keep your eyes peeled, it might be a regional thing...
