Chuck ?Steak?

Have this 2.8 lb piece of something defrosting that calls itself a chuck steak. Heck, it was buy one, get one free. Don't know WHY I fall for it...did that with a husband once and neither of them worked out! Anyway, the last one of these I tried was a leathery piece of goods. Is this one destined to be pot roast or is there some other way of getting flavor into it?[p]mShark


  • mollyshark,
    I recently bought some "chuck eye" steaks.
    They were a little fattier than ribeyes, but they were good. Cheap, too. If that is the same cut, maybe you could cut it into steaks?[p]-Wingnut

  • mollyshark,[p]We've always used chuck for stew. But my father-in-law liked chuck steaks as he always thought they had a good beefy taste. But he would tenderize the heck out of it the day before

    Wingnut,[p]It's really not thick enough to be a roast and definitely would qualify as a steak, but any chuck steak I've had is too chewy to eat as "steak." Thought there might be some good ideas as to what to DO with the thing![p]
