The eye of round roast is a boneless cut of beef that is elongated and usually has a thin layer of outer fat surrounding the cut. One of the best ways to cook this type of roast is to use a slow cooker. Using a slow cooker lets the roast cook gradually, which helps keep it moist and tender. You also can cook vegetables along with the roast to add variety to your meal.
