“We discovered the Chuck Eye steaks a few years back at our local grocery store. The butcher recommended them to us. He calls them 'the poor mans rib eye'. They come out incredibly tender; you just can't beat them for the price. We prepare them many different ways, but this is my husband’s favorite when he's in the mood for a spiced up steak. I highly suggest preparing them outdoors on a grill side burner if you have one, as the rub does smoke when cooked in the cast iron pan.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the rub by combining all ingredients.
  2. Preheat a cast iron pan over high heat, and grill (or oven) to 425.
  3. Rub each steak on one side with the rub. Brush over the rub with a light coat of olive oil.
  4. Cook the steak, rub side down, until 'blackened', about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Flip the steaks over and continue to cook either on the grill or in the oven, until medium rare (or desired doneness), approximately 8 to 10 minutes for a thicker steak.
  6. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
