Beginner's Roast

The secret to this juicy, fall-apart tender roast is in the baking. Before placing the lid on top of the Dutch oven, cover it with a double layer of aluminum foil. An eye-of-round roast has far less fat than a chuck roast, but when tightly covered and slowly baked with moist heat, is every bit as delicious. This easy recipe is also a terrific make-ahead dish. After baking, cool roast completely, and remove from Dutch oven, reserving gravy. Cut roast into 1/4-inch-thick slices, and arrange in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Pour gravy over sliced roast; cover and refrigerate up to 3 days. Reheat in a 325° oven for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
