A flavorful steak with a resilient chewiness. Similar to chuck in flavor, but with a leaner texture. Marinating increases tenderness and allows this steak to develop unparalleled beefy flavor. A great steak for pan-frying or broiling. For a southwestern twist, marinate in citrus juices and ancho chile powder, then grill, slice thin, and serve in corn tortillas with green salsa.
