Chuck eye steak (different from chuck steak) is an inexpensive alternative to the popular ribeye steak. Also know as boneless chuck filet steak or boneless chuck slices, it comes from a cut of beef not too far from the ribeye.
It’s not as flavorful or as tender as it’s neighboring ribeye, but if cooked properly, it can be delicious and tender. The best part is the price is almost a third of what you would pay for a similarly-sized ribeye steak!
It’s best if you can get to your butcher or grocery store early to get the best cuts of chuck steaks. If you find a package in the supermarket that has too much excess fat, I would suggest skipping it and waiting for a better cut. Or you can always trim any excess fat that you don’t want.
