A special steak with a not so special name. This week we want to tell you about the versatile Beef Chuck Roll Steak.

08 Nov

The Beef Chuck Roll Steak has a very basic sounding name, which is why it is sometimes known as the Denver Cut, Sierra Cut and the Mock Delmonico. This cut is one of the cuts that can benefit from a higher grade, like Prime or Certified Angus. This cut runs some risk of being tough and benefits greatly from Jaccarding (pricking it over and with pins) or from marination. 

Garlic is a classic flavor, when it comes to easy steak marinades, and actually, garlic goes with most meat, poultry, and fish dishes. The garlic in the following recipe is combined with thyme for an herby taste, red wine for a bold flavor, olive oil and some salt and pepper. This might sound very basic but you will be amazing just how much flavor this easy steak marinades gives to your meat. For a juicy finish and a simple yet undeniably wonderful result, try this deliciously simple garlic and thyme ribeye steak marinade.

Steak marinade recipes do not have to be difficult and you can even get great results from a 3-ingredient steak marinade. It is a myth that the best steak marinades contain a lot of different ingredients because keeping the flavors simple always works best and every flavor you add will shine through, complementing your meat perfectly.
