Chuck eye roll is a cut of beef. Part of the chuck primal from the shoulder area. Similar in appearance to the ribeye, though less fatty. At E-Mart these days, it’s one of the cheaper cuts available.
As a steak, the meat turned out a bit tough and a bit bland. Better for ground beef.
The website Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner provides useful basic information about beef cuts. However, because it’s maintained by the US National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, who have a vested interest to ensure that all of their products are well-promoted, the qualitative descriptions tend to be overly optimistic – e.g., “chuck eye roll cuts will possess rich flavor and good tenderness.”
