Guys, the internet is confusing me. I have thinly sliced eye steaks defrosting, and I don't know what to do with them. Someone give me guidance.

Probably too late, but I often just cut them up into strips and make a stir-fry out of them. The trouble with eye steaks is they get pretty tough if you over cook them because they're so lean (eye round and all). I will saute them quickly in a hot pan with a spot of bacon fat and some salt/pepper/garlic then deglaze with wine or whiskey. But you need to make sure they don't get more then medium or they're tough imo.

My choice #1
I keep about three different kinds of meat tenderizer in my spice rack. One is store brand, one would be unseasoned, and one would be seasoned (sort of Cajun). Some tenderizers work in a short time, some take longer. Follow instructions on the back of the bottle.

I would tenderizer the eyes with a commercial product. Then I would chunk the meat into bite size cubes and put them in a marinade for a couple of hours. Use your favorite marinade - I like to use Italian salad dressing.

Drain off and discard marinade. Skewer meat with a shish-ka-bob stick. Alternate with your favorite cubed veggies like bell peppers, mushrooms, potatoes, corn on the cob. Brush veggies with butter and add salt and pepper. Cook under broiler or over a BBQ.



My choice #2

Tenderize rounds as directed above. When finished, pound steaks very flat till they are no more than 1/4 inch thick. Now pick your favorite breading and dredge steaks in breading crumbs, fry in hot vegetable oil until they are golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Add garlic salt and pepper.

Breading choices - First dip in one egg mixed with 1/4 cup milk; then dip in Parmesan cheese + cracker crumbs, or

Use same first dip above, and for second bath use seasoned bread crumbs (I like Progresso).

This really brought back memories! My mother often bought eye steaks, and this is how she'd fix them. Pure heaven. :eat2:
