Q:

What is the best way to cook chuck steak?

A:

The best way to cook chuck steak is to slow cook the meat so that it becomes tender. Marinating the meat ahead of time also helps to tenderize the cut.

One method of cooking chuck steak is to braise the steak with a liquid during cooking. Chefs should trim the fat from the meat and place it in a deep skillet or Dutch oven and then add broth and vegetables, beer, or some other liquid to the skillet and cook the steak on low for a few hours until it is done. Pot roast is a good example of braised meat.

A second method of cooking chuck steak is to season the steak and place it inside aluminum foil with vegetables. In general, the entire meal is wrapped in the foil and sealed off. The steak is then cooked in the oven for one to two hours until the meat is tender and the vegetables are done.
