Slow cooking is the best method for an eye of round roast, I have cooked eye of round many times in a Crock-Pot with fantastic results, and you can use blade roast in place of the eye of round. The gravy from this roast goes well with mashed potatoes. Do not add in any extra salt to this recipe and use only low sodium beef broth for this. If you are an onion lover, then you could add in a small chopped or sliced onion if desired. Remember, do not lift the lid of the Crock-Pot while cooking. Each time you do, the heat is lost and you will need to cook it for a longer time.
