This is the leanest cut of meat you will ever eat in your life. Slow cook it for hours and there is no fat content so it will still be dry. Comes in huge pieces that are 5 pounds or greater.

Jerky is the best for this cut!
Just making 8 pounds wet eye round from no frills sale. Thinking of picking up another from freshco because of the price.

Really good to cut up for stew and is half the price of the supermarket stew beef.

Too lean for stew, unless you like it stringy. Without connective tissue and fat, the meat when cut in chunks typical for stew won’t melt. You’ll just be nawing on it.

As pointed out though, this is excellent for jerky.

Can make an "ok" carpaccio or tartare from it.
But sous vide gets the most out of this cut.

There's also biltong,

I'm sure it you pressure cook it it would be suitable for stews/curries/chillies ....

You can always amend the stew with some other type of fat like beacon or the fat frozen from trimming the prime rib from Xmas.

Worst case you can have the butcher grind into ground beef.

For what its worth, this is one of the cheaper cuts of beef you can buy and until about a year ago i didn't ever find a way to cook it to perfection. I've tried slow cookers, instapot, roasting bags etc... all gave me the same results. Then i came across a recipe that **** blew me away and its not only easier, but the meat was so tender and juicy like a **** ribeye..lol

Simple steps. Oven 500 degrees. Cook for 7 minutes PER POUND. (example, 4lb roast, cook for 28min on 500). Then turn oven off and let it sit in the oven for 2:30hr. Take out and let sit for a least 30 minutes. You will have a absolutely beautiful medium roast that is so tender and juicy. I never thought you could make this cut of meat come out that incredible but i would highly suggest it for this cut specifically.

FoodWishes/Chef John? I cook my roasts the same way.
