the simple things in life

This week the market had none of the cuts of meat I wanted, so I bought what was on sale: a beef eye round roast. I wanted something fairly neutral in flavor, since I had a variety of leftovers that needed to go with it, so I got out the new edition of Joy of Cooking and tried their slow-roast recipe. Rub roast with olive oil, liberally salt & pepper, roast at 450 for 10 min then at 250 for 30 min per pound. My 2 pound roast was in for 1 hour 25 min all told, and it's dreamy. Nice brown salty outsides, moist pinkish insides, very lean, nice for slicing (mmm, sammies -- where's my horseradish?). Blindingly easy, very yummy, probably good for dinner parties too.
