Default Eye of Round - Prune, Peppercorn and Herb Marinade

I've never had luck with eye of round, but Peep loves it, so after seeing this recipe on Chris Kimball's Milk St. newsletter, I thought I'd try it.

Yes, it sounds odd, but I figured I'd try anything to tenderize and flavorize this usually tough cut of meat.

I followed the recipe exactly.

The beef turned out much more tender than I'd ever been able to achieve before. Not sure if it was the marinade or the roasting technique.

I didn't think the flavor of the marinade added anything, really.

I would try the roasting technique again, without the prunes.

aahhhhh. so you've fallen down the 'low&slow' rabbit hole <g>

lean meats / cuts don't do well at high temp roasts. the higher temp difference oven-to-center (where you're measuring . . .) results in the outside becoming over heated/ over cooked / hard / dry / tough / other-unmentionables-apply.....

try a nice bone in pork roast at 275' - that'll set you off!
