prepared seafood salad from grocery store
Stuff salad in mushrooms and cook covered fry pan on medium high heat for 10 minutes or until mushrooms are soft.
My husband loves stuffed mushroom, and I hate buying a container of lump crab meat for $12-15. While I was contemplating the purchase, the grocery store had prepared seafood salad (immitation crab meat and shrimp) for $2. So I thought to try it. It was actually delicious!!
Cook time 30 minutes
Prep time 5 minutes
Eye of Round- 3-4 lbs
4-6oz truffle butter (found at specialty food stores)
2 loaves French Bread
salt and pepper
Bring Eye of Round to room temperature, rub with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Preheat oven to 475 degrees and then turn down to 425 when you insert the meat.
Cook for 7 minutes per pound for medium rare. remove from oven and let rest at least 10 minutes.
Slice meat very thin. only slice what you will eat immediately.
Cut loaf in halve lengthwise and spread a generous amount of butter on both sides. Layer meat, top with arugula and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Eye of Round in the cheap version of a Filet of Beef, 3.5lbs cost only $16 and fed 6 people with left overs.
