Cinnamon Glazed Roast Beef

Cinnamon Glazed Roast Beef

When I saw the Eye of Round on sale earlier this week, I went ahead and picked up two to make this week. One of them, I’ve already posted – was the Mustard Crusted Roast Beef. And, although it was really delicious, I wanted to try doing something different with this one – and I think I hit a little closer to what I was aiming for earlier this week. This roast came out so delicious – a little spicy, a little sweet, and a whole lotta beefy flavor. I still managed to overshoot with the cooking – I think next time I won’t cover it to coast or something because I really wanted it to be rare-r, but I can’t complain too much, because this was still a damn fine piece of meat.
