  • 1 3 lbs Eye round roast
  • 1 Cup Red wine
  • 2 Tbls Red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbls Italian Seasoning
  • 2 Tbls Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • Add all ingredients and marinade in bag overnight removing all air
  • Pre heat oven to 500 Deg
  • Remove roast from bag and dry with towel
  • Put roast on rack in shallow pan salt and pepper
  • Place in oven reduce heat ot 475 deg cook 21 minutes or 7 minutes per pound
  • Turn off oven and leave in for 2 and a half hours do not open oven
  • I use blue tooth probe thermometer to track temp as I like more rare
  • Here is where things failed at 108 Deg the temp started to go down
  • I finally opened oven at 104 deg and it was cold
  • I cranked oven to 350 deg as I was hungry
  • When probe read 130 Deg I removed wrapped in foil and rested 10 minutes
  • Roast ended up over cooked and maybe med well at best
  • I do have confidence this method works just not with my oven
