Chuck is great, but we eat it all the time, tenderloin due to cost is reserved for special occasions. Basically I can and do have chuck for almost any dinner but tenderloin is what dad serves for 4th of July and other special occasions (Christmas is standing rib roast).

Totally agree. A well prepared chuck roast is a thing of beauty.

My dad watched his mom raise 3 kids alone in the depression.
He knew every butcher, baker, and deli in the city.
And how to stretch the meal budget.

True, although I prefer brazing it on a bed of vegetables with a bottle of table red in the pot.  Done right, you get a nice crust on top.

I see chuck-eye steaks for sale once in a while, and when I do I grab them. They're tender enough, the flavor is outstanding, and the coarse texture is perfect for soaking up some pan sauce.

To be a real Chuck roast, it needs to be pounded in the rump

It needs to be from the Chuck region of the cow, otherwise it's just sparkling roast?

A good chuck roast slow cooked in the miracle maid with potatoes, onions and carrots is great. A whole loin seared and then roasted in the oven is great. A loin sliced up proper with some onions and butter on the griddle is great. I am failing to see the argument here.

I had a not unacceptable experience with pseudo air frying a chuck. Probe thermometer in the middle of the room temperature roast.  On a wire cooling rack, with a pan for drippings, placed the dripping pan one level below the middle, chuck on the wire rack, on the top rack. Set the convection oven to roast at 450°F, which uses the broiler to kick in some infrared. When reaches set temperature, turn off heat. Remove when probe reads 120°F, let rest under aluminum foil ten minutes. Use a long slicer to cut on the diagonal, serve with sour cream and horseradish.

iat's beef and cheap, and you now have enough for a week on a carnivore diet for the cost of a drive through meal.

Guess why.

Make some friends that are named 'Collette' and just pretend there's a 'U' tossed in there.

Yeah. Except that even chuck roast costs far too much right now, and presenting this as "you could either cook this or that" implies that you have only those two choices, instead of, say, skipping both and making something both tasty and affordable.

Yup. Chuck's been wicked expensive at the usual grocers. Although one of the like three good things of living in Dallas is I can just hit up a good butcher and get badass quality chuck roast for $2-3 less than what the damn meat industry is trying to hold at in the stores. And if I don't mind the significant added fat content (or am making barbacoa), beef cheek is even cheaper at the local meat market.

Aside from that, really oddball shiat has been on sale lately. Skirt steak, oddly enough, has been consistently marked down half off or more. And today I just bought a ~3 lb rack of pork ribs for $5. Total.

Chuck is awful and a waste of money. It is unfit for dog food. Therefore, it should always be <$1.99/lb and I get first pick of all of it.

Yesterday I bought a full rack of ribs. I dry-rubbed with a spice mix, put it in the oven at 275 for 3 hours. Fall of the bone. I  just ate the last 2 ribs with my morning coffee.

I thought the tired "hill to die on" cliche was limited to reddit.

No cliche is too cliche for Fark - we pride ourselves on trotting out the hoariest of them at the drop of a hat

I've got about a quart of reduced lamb birria sauce left over. Gonna split the ribs up and simmer them in that. Remove bones when tender, add water and a couple lbs potatoes.

Hmm... I need to find me a top round roast and some James River BBQ sauce to make roast beef sandwiches over Christmas break.

CSB: never heard or seen a coullete until a week or so before Thanksgiving. It's a really good cut, at a tri-tip price.

I haven't been to Mike's and I'd add mayo to that sandwich. Agree on the pizza roll.

different cuts cook and taste different.  FIGHT!

Almost all cuts of beef have their purpose and are good if used and prepared properly.

The only ones I can't think of that are basically unfit for human consumption are the cross cut shank steaks, I think that's what they're called. Those gristley, fatty little steaks with the round bone.  I'll grab a couple now and then for my dog as a treat cause I can get them for like a buck or so each.

Beef Chuck with Horseradish-Parsley Sauce recipe not available without giving all your life's information away.
I even googled it and it is not there for the taking. I will try some beef chuck next time though.
