View Full Version : Eye of Round Roast

12-09-2017, 02:28 PM
Ok went to get an Eye of Round today...

Noticed the one in the counter was trimmed of fat and in a net...

I am thinking JERKEY


Well when I got home it seems the total for the roast was 2.49! which was the sales price per pound..


I think the meat counter lady has a crush on me :shock:

Half for jerky, the other half slow smoked to medium rare and sliced thin for sammiches? :-D

Being a household of two (2) I usually use an eye-of-round for roast beef. Cook to a light med-rare, rest, and slice thin (for sandwiches). Freeze in portions large enough for a couple of sammies with maybe a bite or two extra for cook's treats.

I usually use some of the end pieces cut 1/2" thick, tenderize real well with a chief knife, to make swiss steaks in mushroom soup.

I would go get about 3 more of those and make a large batch of jerky :D Of course when I do things like jerky I do big batches... no reason to do small batches in this house hold... Probably why I've been making 40lbs of sausages in the past 3 days :D

It looks like the SKU did not pick up the proper pricing.
You were willing to pay 2.49 a pound for about 5 pounds. total of about $11.
About half price, which is fantastic.
I would go back to the store with the label and receipt and offer to make up their mistake. The computer system on this Item has a glitch.
I'll bet you $50 to St. Judes they wave you off, and you won't have to pay.
Then I have a clear conscience.
Once I changed $100 bill for 20's and walked out realizing they gave me 6 20's.
Walked back in and gave the teller the $20 and may have saved her job.

My wife got undercharged at a Lowe's on the way to Chincoteague last year,
and I told her to stop on her way back and pay the difference.
She tried, they waved her off.

I'm less concerned with the eye of round and more concerned with the $15.79 you paid for PBR?? Getcha some good beer to go with that meat!

That is a good cut for Chicken Fried Steak! Slice about 3/4" thick, and pound it down to 1/4".
