Bought the wrong cut of beef, how can I make it yummy?

KrazyB | Jan 8, 200810:48 AM

So the idea was to do a peppercorn steak with a side of garlic mashed with chives. I bought what I thought was three small filets, but turned out to be three small EYE ROUND steaks. Clearly, I wasn't paying even the slightest attention ... except that I thought it was a great price for a filet!

Anyway, from what I've found everything seems to say this piece of meat is super tough and not good to serve as just a steak. So .... what can I do to salvage my meal plan? Any suggestions? I'm thinking perhaps to marinade it for awhile then slice it thinly and kind of saute it in a pepper sauce. Does that sound plausible?

Just curious if anyone has any suggestions. Please tell me I'm not the only person to get distracted at the meat counter and grab the wrong thing! :-)
