Grilled Chuck Steak

I was at Hungarian on Friday and picked up this Middle Chuck Steak for $4.99/lb with plans to grill it up tonight. I love cheap cuts of meat, but know that they have to be taken care of or they will come out tough and what’s the point of that?

I looked at a few recipes online and most of them said to marinate the meat for 8-24 hours. Um, no. There was one recipe that called for baking it at 325F for 1 1/4 hours. I decided that we would try grilling it, with indirect heat, at about 325-350F and hoped for an amazing result. I did a quick marinade – soy sauce, lots of crushed garlic, fresh thyme, and chopped onion. I let the meat sit and marinate only as long as it took the grill to heat up. When Danny was ready for the steak, I patted it dry, but left the garlic and thyme on top since it wasn’t going to be flipped at all. Danny manned the grill and had it on there for about 1 hour when we checked the temp and everything looked and smelled incredible. The perfect meal to end a very long weekend! :)
