Yield: 6 Servings

Prep time: 10

Cook time: 45

Total time: 1 hour


Ingredients

  • 1 eye of round roast, about 3 1/2 lb., trimmed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ cup dry red wine
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tbsp flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425.  Season the eye roast all over with salt and pepper.
  2. Warm a large ovenproof skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil.  Brown the roast over all surfaces - this should only take a few minutes.
  3. Put the skillet into the oven, insert a meat thermometer and cook until the thermometer reaches 130 (medium).
  4. Remove to a cutting board, and allow to rest while you make your pan drippings gravy.
  5. If there is more than 2 tbsp of pan drippings, spoon some out.  Add 1 tablespoon of flour to the drippings and cook for about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the beef broth slowly, whisking constantly.  Continue to add broth until you reach your desired consistency, which should be free flowing, but not runny - and not thick.
  7. Slice the roast into 1/4 inch pieces, serve with rice or mashed potatoes and green beans.  Pour as much gravy on as you like.
