What to do with boneless chuck steak?

I've never purchased this cut. It's on sale for $1.77 lb this week so I'm willing to try using it.

    Chuck steak is just a thinner cut of chuck roast. Best braised, but if marinated or tenderized it can be broiled. If cooked very slowly, it can be BBQ'd. Tasty cut, but can be tough.

      Partially freeze it, cut very thin, make bulgogi.

        chuck to me says: beef stew. Or pot roast. It's a tasty cut but tough; best braised.

          This time of year, instead of stew, I'd use it for kebabs. Cut into cubes, marinate, thread onto skewers, alternating with vegetables, and cook on grill.

              I really like that Mexican technique of adding water to meat, let cook down and then let it brown in its fat at the end. I was mystified cooking pork for the first time this way, but yum! It cooks in its own fat and becomes the essence of porkiness.

                dice it rather small and make chili, moist heat for an hour or two will tenderize it nicely, a very nice flavorful cut of meat for this purpose. I try to find prime chuck which has lots of yummy marble.
