Tender Eye of Round Roast


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (3 pound) beef eye of round roast
  • ½ cup dry red wine (merlot or cabernet sauvignon)
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Combine the oil, salt, pepper, thyme and garlic into a paste, then rub all over the roast.Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour. Forty minutes into the hour, pre-heat the oven to 500 degrees F.


  • Step 2

    On a baking sheet, place two sheets of Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil large enough to cover the roast. Place the roast on the foil sheets and transfer everything to the oven. Roast for 6 minutes per pound.

  • Step 3

    Remove from the oven. Fold up the foil so it wraps the roast then return it to the oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 170 degrees F and roast for one hour. After an hour, check the internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer: 120-125 degrees F will yield a rare center, 130-140 degrees F will yield a medium-rare center, and 140-150 degrees F will yield a medium center.

  • Step 4

    When the roast is finished, remove it and set it on a cutting board to rest. Transfer any drippings from the roast into a saucepan, then combine with the red wine and beef broth.Bring to a simmer over med-high heat and reduce by 1/4; reduce heat to medium-low and whisk in the cubes of butter one at a time until incorporated into the sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

  • Step 5

    Slice the roast into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve with the pan sauce poured on top.
