How to Cook Thin Chuck Steak

Chuck steak is a cut of beef that comes from the neck and shoulders of a cow. You can find chuck steak in most grocery stores, often in cost-effective family packs which can serve four to six people. Some might insinuate the quality of chuck steak is inferior to that of a ribeye or a T-bone steak. However, with a simple recipe you can cook thin chuck steak as a regular — and tasty — part of your home menu.

Step 1

Purchase fresh chuck steak from your local grocer. If you are just cooking it for yourself, you may find that purchasing a large package is still cost-effective. You can cook only what you need, and repackage the remaining steaks in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and freeze for a later time.

Step 2

Rinse off the chuck steaks to remove any potential bacteria. Use a paper towel to lightly blot off excess water. If the steaks are wet, it is difficult for the seasonings to adhere to the steaks.

Step 3

Sprinkle salt and pepper on each side of the chuck steaks. For added flavor, you can also sprinkle them with garlic powder, cumin, paprika or a commercially available steak seasoning. For a deeper flavor, add one of these seasonings, one to two tablespoons of olive oil or fresh minced garlic to the chuck steak, place in a sealed container and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to overnight.

Step 4

Preheat a stovetop grill or preheat your oven on the broiler setting. Cook the chuck steaks for three to four minutes on each side, longer if you prefer your steak more well-done. Use a food thermometer, and cook your steak to 145 degrees.
