    Question Beef Eye meat recipes please ....

    Hi all,

    My MIL gave us a ton of beef meat to pop in our freezer a little while ago and she labeled all the different meats as to what was what ... well, one is labeled EYE and i have no idea how to go about cooking it (i'm not a big red meat fan but DP is) ... anyway, i have defrosted it today and i'm guessing it's about 500gr in weight maybe a little more ... So, does anyone have any recipes ideas for it

    Pretty please ...

    Thanks to any kind replies

    Cheers from Lorelle xox

    Is it in steaks or a roast? Steaks you can do anything, and roasts you can do pot roasts or here is a recipe from taste:

    Eye fillet roast

    Ingredients (serves 4)
    10 pickling onions, peeled, halved
    800g piece beef eye fillet
    8 sprigs rosemary
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    3/4 cup red wine
    1 bunch baby carrots
    Preheat oven to 200?C. Place onions into a lightly greased roasting pan.
    Pierce meat 8 times with a sharp knife. Insert rosemary into piercings. Tie beef with kitchen string at 2cm intervals (this helps the beef to keep its shape). Place on top of onions.
    Combine soy sauce and red wine in a jug. Pour over beef. Season with black pepper. Roast, uncovered, adding carrots 30 minutes before end of cooking time. Cook for 45 minutes for rare, 1 hour for medium and 1 hour 15 minutes for well done.
    Remove from oven. Cover with foil. Stand for 10 minutes. Serve slices of beef with carrots, onions and pan juices

    Thanks Niliac ... i'm guessing it's a roast as it's not like the thickness of a steak but not a huge roast size piece of meat

    Any other ideas as i don't have red wine or small onions or rosemary on hand ... as i need to start cooking it within the next hour ...

    I have soy sauce, carrots, potatoes & 1 x large onion if that helps ?? (and have ran out of garlic)

    In that case google some pot roasts... or you could go a red wine roast and serve it with a nice mushroom risotto... *drool*
