I came across a piece of 5.5 pound piece of Beef Round Eye of Round Whole, USDA Prime on Janurary 2022 at a price of $4.79 per pound from Costco. With the rising prices of meat in 2022, I figured I'd give this cut of beef a try. In the past, I've tried beef round in the past in small chunks in a slowly boiled soup, but it always turns out tough. In generally, beef round is a tough cut of meat.

Generally, the meat turned out tender, but still chewy. The chewy is probably coming from the cut of beef. I plan on trying the other half of this Sous Vide to attempt to tenderize this cut of meat.
