Roast Eye of Round With Marsala Wine Marinade 3 Ways

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping for use on a 3-5 lb. eye of round roast, from askthemeatman.com with some adaptation. Do not use other cuts of round; they will be tough and probably dry. MDM was always successful making round roasts; she said the key was choosing the right cut and accepting nothing less. Cooked weight will be about 80% of raw roast weight. Recipe makes 1 1/2 cups of marinade. Official beef serving size is 3 oz., so adjust nutritional data for actual serving size. Preparation time includes 2 hours of marinating. There are 3 sets of directions for roasting: standard 350-degree oven; initial high 375-degree oven & prolonged no heat standing time; and rotisserie method with prolonged no-heat rotation.

This made a good dinner for us. My DS made this and made gravy out of the marinade to go with mashed potatoes. Made for PRMR.
