Different, tasty, tender - a recipe that has been passed on throughout the family over the years to rave reviews. Try both variations!

WOW!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe...I was doubtful about this coming out tender (wasn't enthused about the cut of beef I had been given). Did the cranberry version in my toaster oven using my digital thermometer to sound off at 135 degrees. Wrapped it in foil until it reached 140 degrees... THE MOST TENDER eye of round I have EVER had. Can't wait to try the herbed/mustard version.
