BEEF CUT FROM THE back of the animal, with long fibers and elongated shape. In addition to being stuffed and roasted, or simply roasted rare to be thinly sliced, eye round is used to prepare two Brazilian classic dishes: Carne de panela (prepared in a pressure cooker), and Carne louca (literally, “crazy meat”) − the meat is shredded or cut into thin slices and mixed with tomato sauce, bell peppers and herbs, to be served cold in salads or as filling for sandwiches. In the South, this cut is also known as tatu (“armadillo”).
