Before we get to the recipes, I want to answer a few common questions about Eye of Round.

What Is Eye of Round?

Cut from the rear leg of the cow, Eye of Round is one of the leanest and toughest cuts of beef you’ll find. Being so lean, it has a tendency to dry out easily so you need to pay special attention to it while cooking. This has given Eye of Round a reputation for being a difficult cut of meat to cook right.

Why Is My Eye of Round Roast So Tough?

Eye of Round is, by nature, a very tough cut of meat because it comes from the hind leg which is a heavily worked section of the cow. If your Eye of Round turns out excessively tough or dry, it’s likely that it was overcooked.

Can You Shred Eye of Round Roast?

Absolutely! My minced meat recipe requires finely shredding the Eye of Round. I use a food processor to make the task easier.
