How Can One Cook a Frozen Eye Round Roast?

Cooking a frozen eye round roast is nearly identical to cooking a thawed roast, although it does take approximately twice as long. Season it to taste, and roast it until it reaches the desired internal temperature.

  1. Prepare for cooking

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating, lightly grease a roasting pan and season the frozen eye round roast with salt and pepper. Rub it with additional herbs or seasonings if desired.

  2. Cook the roast

    Place the roast in the prepared pan with the fat side facing up. Roast the meat for approximately 1 1/2 hours uncovered. A thawed roast typically takes 40 to 45 minutes to cook. Since the eye round is frozen, it needs approximately double the cooking time.

  3. Check the temperature of the meat

    Insert an instant-read thermometer in the meatiest part of the roast. Remove the eye round from the oven once it reaches 135 degrees for medium-rare, 150 degrees for medium or 160 degrees for well-done.

  4. Let the meat rest

    Transfer the roast to a carving board, and cover it with foil. Allow the meat to rest for 20 minutes before slicing and serving. Optionally, add the roasting juices to a saucepan, add extra beef broth and let it simmer for two minutes. Serve the warm au jus with the beef.
