We present the results of a series of simulations designed to determine the observing parameters that can reliably allow for the recovery of stellar masses and radii to better than 1% from double-line spectroscopic eclipsing binaries. This is a critical step in an ongoing program to characterize a large sample of low-mass eclipsing systems discovered by the Kepler Space Telescope using follow-up data from several ground based facilities.
