I bought some because they were on sale for a really, really good price. I have no idea how to cook these or what to do with them. I don't make a lot of meat dishes. Any advice/recipes?

Marinate, marinate, marinate. Chuck is a notoriously tough cut of meat (but usually pretty inexpensive). I'd choose an acidic marinade and soak the meat well for 24-48 hrs, then grill the steaks.

I would use these as a pot roast or stew - something with a long, slow cooking time to break down that tough meat.

My dh makes the best chicken fried steak with it. Believe me, I didn't like the thought of that meal at all until dh made it fresh for me.

Pound the heck out of the steak, then marinate in buttermilk or yogurt to tenderize. When ready to cook, mix up flour with salt and pepper, coat steaks and fry. This is darn good with mashed potatoes and gravy.

mmm.. chicken fried steak sounds yummy! I'm lazy though, cheap steaks usually go in the slow cooker with half a bottle of pasta sauce on top.

If you have a food processor, chop it into smallish pieces and grind it up. You can use it for burgers, meatballs or chili

I would braise it.

(Brown well on both sides in a very hot dutch oven, add some aromatics (onion, garlic, shallots, leeks, what have you),wine, stock, a dash of any tomato product, herbs, a splash of worchestershire if you have it, and finely diced carrots and celery. Cook low and slow until very tender.)

I just happen to like apples, and I am not afraid of snakes. ~Ani d.
