Delicious! I had a large roast (probably about 5 pounds after I trimmed the fat) and it was well done after 3 hours. Even though I usually like it medium, I loved this roast and so did all of my guests! It was a huge hit and will be my new go-to recipe for eye of round. I sliced it thin and poured the juice over the slices and it was terrific!

Delicious and easy recipe. I had a 2.5 lb roast and cooked it for 2.5 hours - it turned out perfect. The only adjustment to the recipe was I added more olive oil after I had browned the roast in the one tsp. of olive oil. It didn't hurt the outcome at all. Thanks so much!

Roast turned out perfect! I did add some additional water to the soup and wine mixture so that the roast was covered by the liquid a bit more. Baked covered for 3 hours, wonderful!
