Herb and Garlic Marinade for Chuck Steak

Chuck steak is a rectangular cut, which is normally an inch thick. There is plenty of connective tissue in chuck steak, including collagen, meaning that you will need to marinate it for several hours to tenderize it. An herb and garlic marinade works beautifully with this cut of meat, and the following recipe combines thyme, mustard, parsley and more to impart plenty of delicious flavor. The vinegar helps to tenderize the steak.

This one works well if you leave the steak marinating overnight, turning it once or twice, and it is one of our simplest recipes because you just combine the meat and other ingredients together. Whichever side dishes you opt for when making this are sure to go very nicely indeed. The meat is going to have a full and delicious flavor, so choose a potato side dish and perhaps some salad too.

Something hot like corn on the cob or onion rings would also work, but the main thing is to choose your preferred side dishes because everyone has their own favorites. Treat yourself to this fantastic chuck steak for dinner and your stomach will love you for it. Once you realize how easy it is to add flavor to chuck steak by marinating it, you will want to repeat this recipe again and again.

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.
