Are you trying to decide what to serve for your next dinner party? We’ve rounded up 15 of our top chuck steak recipes. These chuck steak ideas will make any meal even better!
Put aside the filet mignon and step away from the T-bone.
A good steak — the proud carnivore’s ultimate indulgence — needn’t cost a pretty penny.
Thrifty, flavorsome, and ready in no time at all: these chuck steak recipes have become a part in our culinary arsenal.
The chuck steak, that thick, rectangular cut from the neck and shoulder, seems to fit only for gelatinous stews or pot roasts.
And there’s nothing wrong with that, after all, but it seems absurd to think that’s all you can do with what is in actuality a delicious cut of meat with a great depth of flavor — provided you’ve got a bit of imagination, that is.
We bought our first piece years ago, at the behest of our butcher (if you can trust a man with your breakfast sausages, you ought to trust him with anything).
Despite all the connective tissue jangling around and the disappointing lack of bone, it beckoned: the color was velveteen, rosy red, stippled through with flecks of pale fat, and the lovely, stunning marble prompted “Oohs,” and “Aahs.”
Back then, we’d thought steak would only ever be an occasional indulgence; boy, how it pays to be wrong, especially when you get to try the meaty goodness of #13.
From juicy tacos to gloriously rich Sous Vide Steak (all good things come in 3’s) and an incredible Philly cheese sandwich: here’s how you can plate up some panache without breaking the bank.
A bonafide classic — seductively peppery and positively dripping with buttery, lip-smacking charred fats — this is one dish that’s part of our final fantasy meals.
Turn a meal for one into a veritable feast with tender, savory mushrooms and garlic-tossed noodles.
A flute of wine will make this sing — as will a hunk of well-buttered bread with which to mop up all the flavorsome juices.
Sous vide (French for “under vacuum”) is a method of cooking vacuum-packed food in a temperature-controlled water bath to circumvent the messy, inconvenient business of actual cooking.
There’s no risk of over or under-cooking, and while, yes — it does sound a bit like something outrageously difficult — it’s entirely and utterly easy.
Or as simple this steak is going to get, anyway.
Comedically easy to cook, outrageously rich, and full of big, savory flavors — this recipe is too precious a commodity to keep to yourself.
It belongs center stage at a sparkling dinner party where it’ll get the attention it’s owed, and you can show off a little with its elegant taste.
A punchy side of smolderingly hot fries will do very nicely alongside too.
The real bonus of such a steak is those rich, fragrant pan juices.
Whenever we make this recipe, we eagerly await the moment when the steaks will be returned to the pan to be basted in their broth — that’s when we start uncorking the wine.
Wagyu has long been on the expensive end of the butcher’s case, but these tender, melt-away cuts of beef are definitely worth the try — at least once.
Delicately sweet with a distinct, well-rounded flavor; this’ll appease that hunter-gatherer in you that demands bloody, primal meat.
Say it ain’t so — but before you spear us on your forks, have a go at this recipe.
You might even
This recipe is a lighter way of enjoying steak — very well suited to balmy summer nights spent on the patio.
Serve with a salad.
Succulent, juicy steak tucked alongside crisp, well-salted potatoes — this is, in essence, a hamburger reimagined as deluxe date-night fare.
Splurge on a great bottle of wine, et voila; you can’t miss.
Grilling the chuck eye lends the meat a smoky, mellow flavor that works brilliantly alongside tart lime juice and peppery cilantro.
Heap on some sour cream and nippy sriracha and be done with it.
In the canon of killer sandwiches, the Philly cheesesteak is rightly exalted as being up there with the absolute best of them.
A slice of provolone, ragged, tender beef, and oil-slick onions and peppers, all dolloped onto a hoagie roll straining at the seams — that’s a sandwich.
There’s no better way to banish a hangover than these greasy skillet steak bites.
They’re fatty, salty, and proper fiery — you’ve got to sweat out all that alcohol, after all.
The foremost use of our casserole dish is the retooling of our leftovers — this hearty, delicious stewy dish is the only casserole we make on purpose.
If you’ve always wanted to slow-cook fast, take a gander at this recipe.
You’re sure to reap the dividends.
The bottom line
Unsurprisingly, most folks turn their noses up at the idea of a “thrifty steak.”
To them, we’ve got nothing to say: it’s rude to speak with one’s mouth full.
Whether you’re after a quick meat-fix or craving the rich, smothering warmth of a slow-cooked stew — spend some time tending to a chuck steak — you’ll be glad you did.
