Spicy Eye Round

There's not much better than a meal from a crock pot, and Southern Living's Spicy Eye Round is one of the yummiest recipes ever.  When this cut of meat goes on sale at Costco, I usually reach for this or the 3 Ingredient Roast recipe - neither will disappoint.

If you know me, you'll understand that "Spicy" in the recipe title doesn't indicate heat, but rather that there are spices in the marinade.  If there's too much pepper on something my lips burn, so don't worry - this won't smoke you out!

3- 5 pound eye round roast
2 large onions, sliced

Marinade Recipe
2 cups ketchup
2 cups water
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 T worcestershire sauce
1 t dry mustard
1 t dried oregano
1 t pepper
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t chili powder
1/2 t ground cloves
1/4 t ground nutmeg


Stir together all marinade ingredients.  Place roast in crock pot and add marinade and sliced onions.

Cook on high in slow cooker for 4-6 hours or until VERY tender.  Slice meat and return to sauce before serving.



  1. What a wonderful looking roast! The pictures are great and so are the instructions. Okay - now I'm hungry and we certainly don't have anything as wonderful as your roast in our refrigerator. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us! Reia from
