Eye of Round Roast
You'll be surprised by just how easy it is to pull off this super-impressive flavor-packed holiday roast.


  • (2 teaspoons) kosher salt
  • (4) garlic cloves, peeled
  • (1 tablespoon) orange zest, finely grated
  • (1.5 tablespoons) olive oil
  • (2 teaspoons) black pepper, freshly ground
  • (2 tablespoons) breadcrumbs
  • (2 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • (2 tablespoons) parsley leaves
  • (2 lbs) Eye of Round Roast


Pat roast dry and rub all over with 1 tsp. salt; set aside.

Purée anchovies, garlic, rosemary, orange zest, oil, pepper, and remaining 4 tsp. salt in a food processor until finely chopped, about 1 minute. Transfer all but 1 Tbsp. garlic mixture to a medium bowl; reserve remaining garlic mixture in food processor.

Rub roast all over with half of garlic mixture from bowl. Place fat side up on a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet or in a roasting pan fitted with a rack. Add breadcrumbs to remaining garlic mixture in bowl, mix thoroughly with your fingers, and press onto top and sides of roast. Let stand at room temperature at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, add butter and parsley to reserved 1 Tbsp. garlic mixture in food processor and pulse until well combined. Transfer to parchment paper and roll into a log. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.
Place rack in middle of oven; preheat to 500°F. Place roast in oven, then reduce temperature to 350°F. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of roast registers 120°F for rare or 130°F for medium-rare, 70–90 minutes.

Transfer roast to a carving board and let stand 15 minutes. Slice against the grain into 1/3" pieces. Serve with herbed butter.
