Whatever you do, don’t mistake this for regular chuck – as in a chuck roast or chuck stew. You don’t want to braise a chuck steak! Treat it as you would a ribeye. Season well with salt and pepper and grill. Or you try our perfect steak recipe – just sear it well on both sides in a cast iron pan and transfer it to the oven.
A chuck steak, sometimes called a chuck eye steak, has more connective tissue than a ribeye but the flavor more than makes up for it.
