Pair a robust cabernet sauvignon or burgundy to keep up with the richness of eye of round steak.
About 1 inch to 1.5 inches in thickness per cut, the Eye of Round boasts its natural, circle-like appearance. Cut from the Round primal section, this beautiful cut is one of the leanest pieces of meat. Nestled in between the Top and Bottom Round cuts, the Eye of Round requires a similar approach in cooking techniques. Being a high activity cut, this steak prefers moist-heat cooking such as braises, stews, and sous-vide. If searing for a quick dinner, turn the heat down to cook it low and slow, turning it often.
