How Long to Marinate Beef
Normally, I suggest that meat should marinate for between 2 hours and 24 hours. For this recipe, given how lean the meat is, you should marinate the eye round roast for the full 24 hours. If you are short on time, you can cut this down to 6 hours, but keep in mind this will result in a tougher meat.
