“This is a great easy way to cook cheap steaks. I used some cheap steaks I got on sale and they were so tender and tasty. Recipe is easily adjusted to how many steaks you have. Prep time includes overnight marinating time. Recipe source: Fire and Smoke”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 chuck steaks (or other inexpensive steaks)
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle yellow mustard (I used French's)
  • vegetable oil


  1. Trim all but 1/4 - 1/2 inch fat from sides of steaks and then slash remaining fat with a knife at 1-inch intervals. Spread 1/4 inch of mustard over both sides of steaks -- do not coat sides of steak with the mustard. Place steaks in a shallow dish large enough to hold steaks in one layer and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature 2 hours before grilling.
  2. Prepare grill. I used charcoal sprinkled with wood chips.
  3. Brush grids with oil.
  4. Sear steaks over hot coals (or high heat) for one minute per side. Than adjust grids so steaks are over medium hot heat (on my grill I lower the grill grates or you can move the steaks so they are on the outer edges of the coal to reduce heat). Grill for 7-10 minutes on one side (7 minutes for rare, 8-9 for medium, and 10 for well). Turn steaks and grill for 8-12 minutes (8 minutes for rare, 9-10 for medium rare, 11-12 for well done).
  5. To serve, transfer steaks to serving platter or carving board and let stand 5 minutes before cutting across the grain into slices 1/4 inch thick or serve steaks whole.
