Chuck steak is a flavorful and versatile cut of meat that is perfect for a variety of dishes. It's a relatively inexpensive cut of beef that comes from the shoulder area of the cow and is known for its marbling, which adds flavor and tenderness to the meat.

One of the most popular ways to cook chuck steak is to braise it. Braising involves cooking the meat slowly in liquid until it becomes tender and flavorful. Here's a delicious and easy recipe for braised chuck steak:

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs of chuck steak
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • 1 cup of red wine
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 1 tsp of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F.
  2. Season the chuck steak with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the steak and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side until browned.
  4. Remove the steak from the skillet and set aside.
  5. Add the chopped onion and garlic to the skillet and sauté for 3-4 minutes until soft.
  6. Add the beef broth, red wine, tomato paste, and thyme to the skillet, and stir to combine.
  7. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Place the chuck steak in a large oven-safe dish and pour the liquid over it.
  9. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 2-3 hours, or until the meat is fork-tender.
  10. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until the top of the meat is browned.

This braised chuck steak recipe is perfect for a cozy dinner at home, and it pairs well with mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables. The slow cooking process allows the meat to absorb all the flavors of the broth and wine, resulting in a tender and juicy steak that is packed with flavor.
