This is a great way to cook the eye of round roast. It cooks long and slow resulting in a tender fall apart roast. The eye of round roast is an economical cut of beef that if not cooked right can be really tough. This one was about 3 lbs. and cooked on high for 6 hours.

    Excellent way to do an eye of round. Mine wasn’t falling apart but was so very tender! This recipe is a definite keeper!

      Kathleen, I know what you mean, but you could cook a bit longer if you want that “fall apart” effect. Eye of round tends to be a little harder to break down in the cooking process….it slices very well because of this factor.

        Add one cap of balsamic vinegar to your marinade. Let sit for 2 hour in the refrigerator covered.
        Than cook in the crock pot. Do not add marinade. Add whatever liquid you would use.

      Hello Mary ellen,
      Thi is the third Eye of the round that has not cooked correctly. Not tender at all! 6 Hours on high! What can be going wrong, my slow cooker or where I purchsed the meat.
      Can I add anything to tenderize this one after 6 hours of cooking?
      I follwed the same recipe for the last 5 or 6 years, but I did change butchers, same slow cooker!

    It is in the crockpot – very easy to do. A couple of hours to go – will keep you posted – the kitchen aroma is wonderful.

      Please let us know how it turned out? Did u season overnight, was it tender? I bought one at a very reasonable price, I imagine it will be tough.

    Girl, you are my kind of cook! We Southerners love our meat and potato combos and this one is fabulous! My husband loves onions so I add more to whatever I’m making.

    We liked it so much i am making it again. The kids ate every bite, and I even received a compliment from my my 93 yo father in law.

  5. Mary says
