braised beef with lime-cilantro mayonnaise

Eye of Round Steaks are slowly simmered with onions in a stockpot for tender results. A simple sauce dresses up the final dish!


  • 1 1/2 pounds beef Eye of Rounds Steaks, cut 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped onions
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges


  1. Place beef Steaks, onions and water in stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 45-60 minutes or until beef is fork-tender.
  2. Meanwhile combine Lime-Cilantro Mayonnaise ingredients in small bowl. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.
  3. Remove Steaks; keep warm. Strain solids from cooking liquid; discard solids. Carve Steaks into thin slices; arrange on serving platter. Pour enough cooking liquid over beef to moisten (about 1/4 cup). Serve with Lime-Cilantro Mayonnaise and lime wedges.
