"FIRST CHUCK EYE STEAKS"
My wife's best friend came down for the weekend, so we had our Mothers day dinner Saturday Night. Chuck Eyes, Shrimp, Ribs, Baked Potato and Beans.
I fired up the ECB (Bottom Part) to cook over Charcoal and Hickory. Everything turned out OK. ------ BUT ! I was disappointed in the Chuck Eye's. I had saved the best looking ones with the most marbling for that night. They really were good looking steaks. Mine was not near as tender as I was expecting and had quite a bit of gristle, asked my wife she said the same thing. Now in saying that, for for the difference in price I really couldn't gripe. You get what you pay for.
I guess the kicker on this was, we were really looking forward to the steaks, but was so glad I smoked the ribs.
Another But !!! When I was at the Store Saturday morning I checked the regular price on the Chuck Eyes $6.99 lb. At that price I will stick with Ribeye's. I Would buy some more if they are cheap
The Flavor was great, very, very close to a Ribeye, the texture is slightly different, and the gristle is there. The first ones I did were very tender. Must have been the first cut ?
Just wanted to do a follow up to be fair and keep it real.
I have some more in the freezer, when I grill them I'll post the results
