    NewNerdMom's Note:

    Took the basic technique from Cook's Illustrated to make the cheaper cut of beef more tender, but added a couple of twists. This is great served medium-rare. For those who prefer it more done, the ends should be more to medium. I serve with creamy horseradish. Slice it thin and it's as tender as tenderloin.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sprinkle all sides of 4 lb. eye of round roast evenly with salt. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate 6-18 hours. The longer you let it sit the more tender it will become. But don't let it go over 18-24 hours.
    2. 2
      Remove roast from refrigerator and allow to come to almost room temperature,.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.
    4. 4
      Pat roast dry with paper towel.
    5. 5
      Cut deep slits into roast and stick in slivered pieces of garlic.
    6. 6
      Rub with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle all sides evenly with pepper.
    7. 7
      Heat remaining oil in large, heavy bottomed pan (I just use my shallow roaster with rack).
    8. 8
      Sear roast until browned on all sides, 4-5 minutes per side. Should create some good fond.
    9. 9
      Transfer roast to wire rack in shallow roaster pan.
    10. 10
      Use meat-probe thermometer and set it for 125 degrees.
    11. 11
      Roast until meat-probe thermometer inserted into center of roast registers 120 degrees for medium-rare, 1 1/4 to 1 3/4 hours, or 130 degrees for medium, 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 hours.
    12. 12
      Turn oven off; leave roast in oven, until meat-probe thermometer registers 130 degrees for medium-rare or 140 degrees for medium (this can take as little as 15-30 minutes longer).
    13. 13
      Transfer roast to carving board and let rest 15 minutes.
    14. 14
      Slice meat crosswise as thinly as possible and serve with creamy horseradish.
