Eye of round steaks...

What's the best way to cook these? Just like any other steak? Marinade? I'm open to suggestions...

    I did this cook a while ago and loved it. Do you have a jacard?

    @MrCookingNurse I don't have a jacard (I do have forks!), but those look mighty tasty marinated.

    @double The ribs are sitting at 133* and just crossed 48 hours. Can't wait till tomorrow night.

    As far as the ribeyes...not what I thawed out.

    Well, when I opened the package (from a quarter of beef we just got) the steaks were really thin. So, I've got them in a southwestern-ish marinade til tomorrow. Gonna cook them and food saver/freeze them for fajitas/nachos/pizza down the road. It'll give me another reason to use the charcoal before I finish the short ribs that are in the SideKic.

    The Cooking Nurse did a good cook with these, if you like a strong marinade, get a Jaccard tenderizer. Did an eye of round, garlic inserted and heavy on the rub, cook it and slice thin, great deli meat. 
    I hit the roasts maybe 30 times with the three knife set. 
    Forks spread the meat fibres, a Jaccard cuts the meat fibres - big difference.
