Grilled, Eye Round Roast

Total Time: 1 hr 15 mins Preparation Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 1 hr


  • 5 lbs beef eye round, 4 - 6 pounds
  • vegetable oil
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • cajun seasoning, butt kickin' blacken, original recipe, to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste


  • 1 1. open the meat, rinse and pat dry. place it on a platter, and coat the whole thing with oil, then rub the spices inches be sure to use a lot more of all of the spices, because the roast will be on the grill fore a long time, and they won't taste as strong as you think.
  • 2 2. start your grill, and get it to a medium - medium / low heat, or, build a fire on one side, and place the meat on the other. you'll be roasting this eye round, and it will be there a long time, so you don't want to burn it.
  • 3 i use a small charcoal grill, and can't cook using an indirect heat method, so i sprinkle a little water on the coals to cool them down before i place the meat on the grill.
  • 4 3. cook for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, rolling it around every 20 minutes or so. test the temperature with an instant read meat thermometer for 110 degrees, for medium rare. if you've got a grill like mine, you might want to test it in a couple of different places. cooking time will change based upon how hot your grill is, and the thickness of the meat. just because a meat is larger by pounds, doesn't always mean that it will cook much longer. generally, even though it weighs more, it's still just as thick as one that's a little less weight, and will cook in the same amount of time.
  • 5 4. when the meat is done, place it on a platter, and cover with aluminum foil, this let's the juices redistribute, and finishes cooking the inside.
  • 6 5. to serve:.
  • 7 slice this as thin as you can, it's not the most tender piece of meat, so you want to keep it from being too tough.
