The Chuck Eye Steak

What is a Chuck Eye Steak?

The chuck eye steak, also called a "poor man's ribeye," is a cut from the shoulder of the cow or chuck primal, from the fifth rib. Its fat ratio makes it a beefy, tender and flavorful cut. It is mostly known as a cut that makes delicious roasts, as the chuck eye benefits the most from low-and-slow cooking methods, using moist heat or braising. For safe consumption, it’s recommended to cook chuck eye steak to an internal temperature of 145°F.
