Chuck comes from the shoulder area and yields cuts known for their rich, beefy flavor. Chuck primals can give you roasts ideal for slow-cooking as well as more tender, grill-ready cuts like Flat Iron Steaks. Just ask our butchers!
Some of you may be intimidated by Chuck. There are so many recipes to try, but many people often don’t know where to start or just how easy it is to cook Chuck. Save yourself some time with these recommendations!
You can cube Chuck beef for beef stew or chili, shred it for BBQ, or even have our butchers grind it up to use in Sloppy Joes. Chuck is a perfect cut for cooler weather because you can throw it in your Crock Pot or Instant Pot for a quick and easy weeknight meal ready in an hour or less with minimal prep work. Plus, the recipes are endless! There’s a Chuck recipe for even the pickiest of eaters.
As if that wasn’t enough to make you want to grab a chuck roast for tonight, think of the leftovers… You can take your cooked Chuck and use it to make tacos, nachos, or enchiladas, add it as a topping on salads, make a Chuck sandwich, and so much more.

Two of our recommended recipes are for those delicious Tony’s Butcher’s Pantry Sloppy Joes made with ground Chuck (and feel free to add green chiles!) and easy Chuck Beef Barbacoa with Tony’s Butcher’s Pantry Barbacoa Simmering Sauce that pairs perfectly with Tony’s Guacamole or Tony’s Tortilla Chips. Both of these starter sauces come with recipes listed right on the jar, so just add your chuck to get started.
Cozy up to the crock pot for this delicious take on a pot roast. Watch as Anna Rosacci, granddaughter of Tony, shows us how to whip up her Italian Chuck Roast. This recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight or an easy way to spice up “the boring ol’ roast.” Serve it up as a toasted sandwich using some of the spicy, savory broth as a dip. Be sure to use a crusty bread as this recipe is super juicy.
You won’t be sorry!
