    They're great! Remember, chuck eye, not chuck steaks.
    Good fat content, beefy flavor, affordable....until
    everyone reads this and the price starts going up to
    meet demand! Nevermind!

      Way to go, jellybear! Chuck Eye steaks are our #1 favorite, followed by Porterhouse and N.Y. Strip!
      I had Chuck Eye, medium rare, last night and I'm having one today. It's the best (to us)!!!

        According to[url='http://www.foodsubs.com/MeatBeefChuck.html']Cook's Thesaurus[/url] the chuck eye is also known as mock tender, chuck fillet/filet, chuck tender, and Scotch tender. The Piggly Wiggly I shop at usually uses the "mock tender" term.

            Nothing better than a good chuck steak on a charcoal grill, to me anyway.
            More bang for your buck. Very versital also, cubbed makes for a great beef stew and ground for burgers. I mix some ground chuck with some ground fresh briscit for a great burger. Chow Jim

                At Publix here in south Florida, the Chuck Blade steak is the same as the Mock Tender, both of which are nothing spectacular (I never buy them anymore)....but the Chuck Eye steak, well, it's great!

                  Guys,
                  there is a difference between Chuck Eye and blade. Chuck Eye is the cut next to the Rib Eye, it's just forward on the animal from the loin/rib section. Chuck blade is from the shoulder, not the same tenderness or fat to lean ratio. The blade is a real working muscle, the Chuck Eye does less and is therefore more tender. There are only a couple of chuck eye steaks per chuck (front quarter) so only about four steaks per animal. That makes 'em harder to find in the supermarket. And if the butcher is in the mood for steak, there's a good chance he's taking them home with him. My father was a butcher and Chuck Eyes were the only steaks he'd bring home.

                      Some of our local markets sell something they call chuck delmonico.These steaks are very good.Are these the same as chuck eye?

                        I learned from my Mom, who grew up during the Depression, that chuck, although cheaper has really great taste. I use ground chuck for my burgers and meatloaf, chuck roast for my pot roast and first cut chuck steaks all the time. As long as you know how to cook or tenderize chuck it really does have great flavor. And the cheaper price doesn't hurt.

                          I've had the chuck eyes before (sold here as mock tender) and yes, they were tasty. No confusing them for a tenderloin, but a nice steak if you want something different.

                            My local Shop Rite supermarket calls them "charcoal steaks". I'm not sure why but they are a favorite with my oldest daughter who wants to really "chew" her meat. No falling off the bone meat for her. She's not fond of pot roast or ribs that have meat "falling off the bone". She is now 18 but I always got a kick out of waitresses when she would question them(at age 9 or 10 or so) as to how tender the ribs were at wherever we were eating. If the waitress gushed about how tender they were, she would totally roll her eyes and order something else. Many puzzled looks but I guess you should order what you like. Consequently I usually make beef ribs over pork as I can make them tasty with a little more "chew".

                                Correct.

                                Although I won't turn away a good chuck steak...I buy a quarter every year and have the chuck roasts cut into steaks.

                                  Just curious- why did you finish them in the oven? Does it make this cut more tender? What temp, and how long in the oven? Were they still med rare- hopefully they didn't go much past.

                                  Thanks

                                        I bought a package of chuck eye steaks tonight for $4.99 per pound. I cooked them in a cast iron skillet over extremely high heat- the skillet, w/ no oil, was smoking when I put the steaks in. I added a small amount of oil. I seasoned them with S&P and finely minced garlic. I cooked them in the skillet for about a minute and a half per side, and let them rest for about 5 minutes. WOW- my only complaint- There was only about a pound of them. I didn't know what I was missing! Thanks for the heads-up on this cut of steaks! For about half the price I've been paying for steaks, I can have these steaks, which in my opinion, are every bit as good!

                                        Thanks again for the heads up!

                                          The reason why I stick them in the oven is because I just put a quick sear on the outside and then take them off and let them rest a while and then pop them in to get the degree of doneness that I like.I like a nice rare to med.rare and this way they come out perfect evert time.I wont cook a steak on my grill anymore its a waste of charcoal.

                                            Beef Chuck Blade Steak:

                                            Beef Chuck Top Blade Steak Boneless:


                                            Beef Chuck Mock Tender:


                                            These are listed roughly in the order of tenderness. The last two are perhaps best braised, and the chuck blade steak has blade bone, back bone, and rib bone.

                                                I was confused too, and went to look them up!

                                                        I love chuck eye steaks. We call them Delmonicos.
                                                        Sear quickly to desired doneness in a hot black iron skillet. Remove steaks, turn off heat. Stir in a large pat of butter, a can of drained button mushrooms, and a splash of red wine. Super!
