What You'll Need

  • 1 eye of round roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • 4 cloves garlic, each cut in 4 to 6 slivers
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

How to Make It

  2. Combine the paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper; rub over the roast and place in a large food storage bag. Add the oil and apple juice. Seal the bag, refrigerate, and let marinate for 2 hours.
