German Inspired Crock Pot Eye of Round


Weekend crock pot meals are great. The weekend is usually when I’m running around doing errands, getting ready for something social, and sometimes it gets a bit daunting to figure out dinner. This weekend, I had a beautiful eye of round roast that I thawed out, so I decided to make it in the crock pot. It was so big, I actually had to cut it in half to fit. I think normally you cook roasts in the oven to rare or medium rare, but since this is a slow cooked method, even though it’s not pink in the middle, it’s fork tender, and delicious. If i was going to be home all day, I might have thought about using the oven, but I just didn’t have the stay home time for that. The red cabbage and vinegar, gave it a bit of a german inspired flair, while still giving it good ol’ comfort food potential. Actually, the worst thing about this dish, is that it was gone too fast! With 3 lbs of meat between two people, I thought I’d get a few meals out of it. It barely made it to lunch the next day! Oh well…..I’m going to need a bigger crock pot.
