A short question from Germany

Hessenbub Dec 3, 2007 04:52 AM

I've bought a book with chili recipes (in English). Is there anybody out there (probably every US-citizen), who can explain me the meaning of the word "chuck" in chuck beef. What kind of meat is it? Describes it the part of the cow (like shoulder)?

    The illustration is at the bottom of the page.

      Thanks a lot. There is nothing more to say.
