Big SV Eye Round (Along with Prime Rib Re-heat)
So we finally got some Eye Rounds below $6 a pound!!!
I got two of them, at about 8 pounds each.
This one was 8.02 lbs @ $2.49 a pound.
So I bagged it along with a pack of “Lipton Mushroom/Onion Soup Dry Mix”.
I put that in my Sous Vide Supreme, set @ 132°, along with 3 small slices of frozen leftover Prime Rib, for Supper.
After 4 hours @ 132° I removed the Prime Rib slices from the SV.
We added some Mashed Taters with Butter, and some Broccoli for the first night’s Supper.
When I removed the Prime Rib from the SV, that dropped the Water Temp from 132° down to 104°, but it only took it 12 minutes to get it back up to 134.7°, and another 3 minutes to level off at 132° again.
Then the next day, at the end of 30 hours, I removed the Big Old Eye Round from the Hot Tub, and put it in a big bowl of Ice Water, and into the fridge.
Then the Next day, I cut it in half & put the Eye Round in the freezer for 3 hours.
Then onto the slicer & sliced the whole thing up for Supper & many, many Beef Sammies to come.
I made some Steak Fries in my since Semi-Retired #360 Air Fryer, and whipped up an Awesome Oversized, 3 slice Hot Roast Beef Sammy with Gravy, and Gravy on the Fries.
I’ll be posting some of these Sammies in the near future, but that’s it for now, including the Ton of Pics below.
Hope You all enjoy this one—I sure Did,

After 4 hours in the 132° Bath, I removed the Prime Rib for Supper, and left the Eye Round in the SV for tomorrow's completion:
Next day, after 30 hours @ 132°, I removed the Eye Round & dropped it in a big bowl of Ice Water to cool fast:
Next Day, I cut it in half & put it in the Freezer for 3 hours for better slicing:

Had to put meat in Bags & put in Freezer for a few hours, before sealing, to keep juices away from the sealing strip:
