Why Chuck Eye Steak Makes A Great Alternative
To Ribeye
Although ribeyes are prized for their melt-in-your-mouth texture, they're also one of the pricier cuts of steak. Luckily, there is a more economical cut that you can swap in place of a ribeye, without sacrificing flavor or tenderness.
If you're looking to save a little money on your grocery bill, or you're eager to try something new, consider swapping out a chuck eye steak for a ribeye. Chuck eye is cut off the fifth rib of the cow, whereas the ribeyes come from ribs number six and twelve.
Besides their close proximity to ribeye, chuck eye steaks are also a highly marbled cut. If you’re new to chuck eye make sure you buy a chuck eye that is boneless, otherwise, you might end up with a chuck roast, a cut that needs to be prepared in a slow-cooker.
