The Chuck Steak is a heavily streaked steak from the rear loin with a distinctive flavour of its own and a pleasant bite
The Chuck Steak takes its name from the neck of beef, also known as the chuck flap. It is precisely from this area that the steaks are obtained as a cut. Heavily streaked and matured for a long time, Chuck Steaks are something very special for real connoisseurs and really versatile.
Excellent for grilling or roasting. Prepared as a stew whole, the meat almost falls off the fork. Prepared as a steak, the meat convinces with its amazing marbling and remains wonderfully juicy despite short cooking times and hot searing!
The high proportion of intramuscular fat that characterises a Chuck Steak ensures an intense flavour of its own. If the meat of Chuck Steak or Chuck Roast (Chuck Steak in one piece) is cooked for several hours, the fat takes on a gelatinous and soft consistency
This gives you a Chuck Steak with a bite and incomparable flavour - our top seller among the inexpensive steaks
The Cuck Norris of steaks
Our Chuck Steaks are simply tasty
Of course, roasted aromas are a must in connection with steaks. We have a trick for you to get the optimum roastiness out of them! It is best to keep the steaks at room temperature for two hours before preparation and then season them with coarse sea salt.
Then the Chuck Steaks go into the pan, or on the high-temperature zone of the grill, where they are seared very hot on both sides. After 3 minutes per side, the meat is cooked to the desired core temperature in the indirect area, or alternatively in the oven. If you prefer a slightly pink core, you should pay attention to a core temperature of 54 °C.
Recommendation for cooking
Medium rare at approx. 53 °C core temperature
Quantity per person
We recommend one 300g chuck steak per person.
Herkunft und Haltung
Quality is our highest concern, and in the case of beef, a few factors are crucial. These include the perfect breed of cattle, the age of the animals and optimal feeding, free of concentrated feed. However, this alone is not enough to meet our requirements.
Because we don't do things by halves when it comes to the quality of our meat products! That is why 100% of our animals come from Austria. The farms are located in the Waldviertel in Lower Austria, in Salzburg and in neighbouring Upper Austria. In addition, at Fitmeat we only process the finest meat from heifers and steers.
The meat has a wonderful marbling and taste. Our classic cattle breeds include Red-Angus, Black-Angus, Charolais, Limousin, White-Blue Belgian and Wagyu, as well as various crossbreeds.
Our cattle are 4x AT certified. This means that birth, rearing, butchering and refinement take place 100% in Austria. The value chain therefore remains entirely in Austria.
We distance ourselves from long animal transports and select our partners very carefully. Therefore, we rely on animals that are kept in a species-appropriate manner, born and raised by small farmers, and on butchers who know both the farmer and the animal personally.
Our butchers let the cuts mature on the bone for a long time. This gives us first-class, well-hung meat that does not lose water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
