Paula Deen calls this "Party Eye of Round Steak," and you'll discover why once you give it a try. The marinade can be whipped up in under a minute flat, and after letting the steaks soak overnight, wrap them in bacon, and roast in the oven until they reach 145F, or to medium-rare. Simple, fast, and delicious!
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 1 (0.7 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix
- 6 slices bacon
- 2, 8oz Eye-of-Round steaks
- Salt and pepper
Using a shallow glass dish, combine the oil, bourbon, and salad dressing mix. Place the beef in the dish and coat with the marinade mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Remove the meat from the marinade and blot it dry using a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper, and wrap in bacon slices.
Place meat in oven and roast until a meat thermometer registers 140-145F. Allow beef to cool, slice thinly, and serve.
