Hey! Here I am! I’ve put off posting because work continues on the renovation, and there hasn’t been any significant change worth a photograph. But — I’ve missed you guys so decided to send out a note that’s a little out of my league. Y’all know that I don’t like to spend any more time in the kitchen than is absolutely necessary. Conflict: hate to cook but love to eat. -sigh- So here’s the story….
A few weeks ago I accidentally bought an eye of round roast at the grocery store. I know — toughest piece of meat on the market. I didn’t have my glasses on. All I could see was a beautiful roast with a $3.00 price tag. Naturally I snagged it. LOL Got home and tossed it in the freezer. Pulled it out a few days later to thaw for dinner and realized my error…. Oh dang. (Okay, that’s not what I really said, but let’s pretend that I didn’t use an ugly word.) Still, we had to eat it. I googled a few recipes and decided to try this one — mainly because of the blog title. Something about a “domestic man” attracted me. -smile- It turned out okay. My oven didn’t hold the heat very well so I had to cook it longer with some heat on, but it was tasty and pretty and not too tough so I decided this week to try it again with a few modifications.
Instead of using the roasting pan I put it in a deep iron skillet that would help hold the heat. Then I rubbed the roast down with olive oil before I coated it with the seasonings so they would stick better. I also added a handful of baby Dutch yellow potatoes…. Yummy, yummy, tiny potatoes. At the point in the process where I was to turn the oven off I turned it to warm instead (150 degrees) and followed the rest of the directions.
I’ll use the leftovers tonight — little slivers of roast to top off a big salad. Not too bad, huh?
I hope that y’all are having a great week and looking forward to an even better weekend. I’ll be back soon with more photos…..
