Just like the above searing on stove top, but with a minor addition – cast iron skillet. It takes much longer to heat up, but, as soon as it gets very hot, it stays hot for a long while.

Slow cooking – ideal for tougher, less expensive cuts, which are rich in collagen and need prolonged moist heat to break it down.

This is why cooking tougher chuck steaks in a slow cooker is a great idea – see how to do it.

Broiling chuck eye steak at home, using conventional oven is a nice way to get benefits of grilling, while being inside the house.

Chuck eye steak is ideal substitute for a more expensive rib eye.

Chuck roast is a piece of cow from which all chuck steaks are cut out.

It’s rather big and requires more skill during cooking – see how to sear chuck roast on stove top.

[box title=”Grill Chuck Roast” border_width=”1″ border_color=”#e5e5e5″ border_style=”solid” align=”left”]

Chuck roast is basically a bigger slice of chuck steak. However this small difference makes the entire preparation process more tricky.

[box title=”Chuck Roast in Pressure Cooker” border_width=”1″ border_color=”#e5e5e5″ border_style=”solid” align=”left”]

Pressure cooker is a great way to speed up the whole cooking process – food inside prepares quicker.

It also helps to keep the mess down – cook chuck roast in pressure cooker.

Even though oven bags are not a solution to preserving steak tenderness (it’s actually the temperature regime that matters the most), they can be used for oven cooking – see how to cook chuck roast in an oven bag.



One of those steaks I buy on the regular basis.

Why? To me it has one of the best price/quality ratios.

It is inexpensive, quite tender (especially when you ask to cut it from closer to the rib section) and there are all sorts of recipes you can use it for – it’s like a substitute for round steak in many of them.

See what we got just below!


Chuck Recipes

It’s one of those steaks you can use for many different things – not just pure pan-searing or baking.

It’s one of those cuts, which you probably don’t care about that much (I experience some sort of positive trembling, when searing a rib eye, a higher-end cut), so do not bound your creativity – go try all sorts of things.

These recipes will help you to get started. Please enjoy J!

Chuck Steak Recipes: Slow Cooker (i.e. Crock-Pot)

Not in a rush? Great!

Now that we have some time, slow cooking is a great choice. I really love the concept – load the cooker with some random ingredients, set on “Low”, leave it for a couple of hours and – bam – it’s ready!

If you are like me in this way, you will certainly enjoy the recipes. By the way, they are all healthy and paleo!

Chuck Steak Recipes In Oven

Cooking chuck in oven is another thing you could find yourself doing. There is a trick though.

Unless it’s a chuck eye you have, it would still be rather tough. Ideally you should prepare it at low-heat until the desired level of doneness. Then – pan-sear the steak for a short period of time to get the browning right.

Here is more details on how to oven-cook at low-heat.

Here is the oven-stove method, which guides you through the process.

And, finally, here are the recipes themselves. Thank you for checking them all out!

Chuck Steak Calories & Nutrition

In the US, just like in some other countries, there are three main beef grades : Prime, Choice and Select. Marbling (i.e. intramuscular fat) is an important determinant of a grade given. It’s positively correlated with the amount of calories.
