Chuck Eyes

Found some time to fire up the grill for some cheap steaks. Chuck Eyes were $2.50 for two.

I also tried a Chuck Steak. This was very thin and cooked real fast. I cooked both for 5 min on each side. The Eyes were great but the Chuck Steak was too well done for my liking. Great flavor on both. I sprinkled some cinamon on with my reg steak seasoning.

As I was watching the thick white smoke coming out of the chimney I realized that the Minion method made perfect sense.

Looks terrific!

I haven't found them here, but I'm going to try harder. Chuck in any form has to taste great -- how were they for tender?

Chuck Eyes were cooked on the rare side. They were as tender as a $1.25 steak could be.

Nothing wrong with cutting small bites.

How bout it, like skirt steak. It was a cheap cut.

Chuck Eye looks excellent especially for the price and you have cooked them to perfection, RARE! Nicely done!

It is a small steak with a lot of fat and a little membrane. You have to eat around it a bit but the tender meat is as good as any $20 steak you can buy IMO.
