Stove Top Eye of the Round

Print PrintShare with Friends


I adapted this recipe from another recipe that I came across in a Greek cookbook, omitting a couple of ingredients that I knew my family wouldn't like. It makes a very flavourful roast and is a good way to do a roast in the summer, especially if you don't have air conditioning! The leftovers make great sandwiches.
