About chuck steak

Chuck steak is the cut of beef from a large section of the shoulder of the cow. Because this part of the cow gets a lot of exercise, it tends to have a lot of muscle, which can make the meat tough. Chuck steak has a lot of marbling and collagenous connective tissue, making it not only one of the best-tasting cuts but also less expensive than many of the more tender cuts. Chuck steak covers a large part of the shoulder and can be broken down into different cuts that include:
  • Top blade: The shoulder top blade is also known as flat iron steak. It is a good grilling steak, with lots of marbling for flavor.
  • Shoulder center: The shoulder center, also called a ranch steak, has less fat than other chuck steaks. Because it's leaner, it doesn't have as much flavor.
  • Chuck-eye: The chuck-eye comes from the area right near the rib-eye. It's an excellent choice for grilling and only needs a little salt and pepper to enhance its flavor.
  • Shoulder petite tender: Also called mock tender steak, this cut is next to the top blade. It has a good amount of flavor but often needs a marinade for grilling.
  • Chuck 7-bone: This is the typical chuck steak. It contains parts of the shoulder bone, is about an inch thick, and has a rectangular shape. 
The nutritional value of the chuck steak depends on the cut since it correlates directly with the meat's fat content. A typical 3-ounce serving of chuck eye steak has 235 calories and 17 grams of fat, while the same size shoulder petite tender has 135 calories and just 5 grams of fat.

FAQs About Chuck Steak

While chuck steak and chuck roast come from the same part of the cow, they are two different cuts. Chuck roast is tough and includes the blade bone. It's cut in a cylindrical shape with the grain running in the same direction as the long side of the meat. Chuck steak comes from the roast, but it's cut into 1-inch slices.
