I would use it to make goulash.

 

I like goulash.  I haven't made it in forever.  I dug out the recipe.  Nope, not going to happen, never be able to masticate that beef.  Any young maidens dying to come over and prechew, please PM.

 

Grinding with bacon sounds the best suggestion.  Or better, just bacon.  But I have no bacon.

if you don't grind it up

 

you can of course SV it to tenderness , at your desired " done-ness '

 

but it wont be too tasty.  so add some flavor to the bag before hand

 

diced mushrooms ?  teriaki sauce  ? etc

 

rare  130 F  1- 2 days   go for somewhere in between 

Yes,  and a good bit of salt will help palatability

Rouladen. Pound it thin, salt and pepper, wrap it around a bratwurst and a dill pickle spear, wrap that in bacon. Brown. Simmer in red wine with caraway and juniper berries for an hour or so.

 

Guaranteed tender and tasty. Tastier, the better bratwurst and pickle you use.

 

Greatly assisted by some red cabbage and German potato salad.

@JoNorvelleWalker

 

I wonder if it has representation on a 7-bone chuck ?

 

all the cuts there , except one do well @ 130 for 24 - 48

 

except the Blade  , which can come as a steak or a roast.   you can tell the steaks as they have a thick membrane between the two

 

muscles .  very delicious cut of meat.  but the steaks are not large as they are cut vertically from a horizontal blade roast

 

and that roast is not that thick "  6 " or so ?

 

any pics of the cut ?

The package consists of two oddly shaped small steaks, each about right for my appetite.  I'll try for a picture tomorrow.  I must say it looked really good for an inexpensive bit of meat.  No membrane that I remember.  And that USDA Choice sticker sucked me in.  I'm not completely broke at the moment and my eye flirted with the Prime boneless rib eye not that much further down the display.

 

But much more fun to learn something!

thank you

 

trim out some of the globs of fat , tie back together

 

and SV   @ 130  for 36 - 48.

 

that's what Id do

 

although I can't see what's under the label

 

this might be a ' butterflied ' pice of meat , just looking at that top

 

might be tender and tasty after 36 - 48.

I did a large batch of Costco bone-in chicken thighs yesterday, so big I had to pull out the old Dorkfood sous vide controller (my first one) with the Betty G crockpot.  Now that's "old school".   "New school" Joule was also employed.

You don't think this is the same thing as the mythical chuck eye steak?

I really can't say.  

 

is the hunk under the label  "" similar "  i.e. a mirror image of the hunk we can see.

 

this has nothing to do with anything , buy the way,

 

I know Chuck from the " 7 bone " slab.      that bone being the clavicle

 

other than that , " chuck " is always a bit of a mystery for me.

 

I can be a tasty mystery , but a mystery none the less

 

way back when I began my SV Studies , chuck SV'd for  the time indicated above

 

turned out tender and tasty and rare.

 

then from time to time id get a ' mealy ' piece , and gave up on it.

 

Ive never run into a Chuck Eye , so I moved on to other cuts.

 

and blade-roasts in my area are very rare, at any price.

I actually found a chuck-eye steak!  I shopped at Publix yesterday and was looking for the equally mythical (at least in my area) tri-tip and there they were!!!

Where do all the tri tips go in the East?  I can find one at Wegmans and WF occasionally, but mostly they are scarce.

Exactly.  I think I've seen one once at Wegman's.  I'm quite sure that our butcher could get them for us.  She does whole animals.  I mean it's in there somewhere.  I just don't think to ask.

According to Wikipedia chuck filet steak is sold as chuck eye steak.  @Dave the Cook do you have any more information on the mystery?

I got 4 tri-tips , carefully trimmed right in front of me , and ' Prime '

 

and on sale to boot !

 

cut them up at home into smaller pieces , and SV'd them

 

what I didn't do , which would have been smarter 

 

was to look up on the Internet the Tri-tips different grain directions 

 

and used that info in breaking the meat down

 

was very tasty never the less.  and this was before trying the RB40  refrigerator cure.

 

if you do find a TT , study its anatomy a bit before you work with it.   it makes a bit of a difference

 

but not an overwhelming difference.

 

if I ever run into TT again , Im sure to use the RB40 Rx as I like it.

I've never heard of a "chuck filet," and what you've got there doesn't resemble any (culinary) filet I've ever seen. But when you get down to individually-sized chunks of meat, especially beef, people can apply whatever name they wish, it seems (see, e.g., "Delmonico" steak, "club" steak, sometimes even "rib-eye" steak). 

 

Having complained thus, those look a lot like chuck-eyes. They're definitely chuck, anyway, and they appear to be cross-cut, which is correct. So I'd treat 'em as if they were chuck-eyes. @Anna N's advice of 56°C/24 hours is a good starting point, though I prefer them closer to medium, say 59.5°C.

@Dave the Cook

 

excellent analysis

 

Chuck labels in the Market are indeed all over the place.

 

I try to use the 7-Bone chick slab as my reference

 

in the markets I go to , they will tell me where the item of choice 

 

meats that 7-bone

 

we all like our meat to what we like

 

Id like to encourage those to do the meat at 130.1 f

 

and then sear or what ever you do.

 

just take the time in the SV Bath to get that meat very very tender.

This is excellent advice; however, in my markets, it's harder to find a seven-bone than a chuck-eye! Sometime back, I showed how to fabricate a chuck-eye by cutting up an underblade chuck roast. It's here: https://forums.egullet.org/topic/117531-the-chronicles-of-chuck/?do=findComment&comment=1589141.

      Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
      Thanks

      Utilization of meat leftovers from sous-vide cooking
      Sometimes when you buy a nice cut of meat, your eyes are bigger than your and your beloved's stomach. So what to do with the leftovers?
      In Tyrolia (Austria) they make a "Gröstl", in Solothurn (Switzerland) they make a "Gnusch", in the Seftigenamt (a region in the Swiss canton Berne) they make a "Gmüder", and we (Pedro and SWAMBO) make a varying concoct using ideas from all of the three. We call it "Gröstl", but it is not necessarily a typical Tyrolean Gröstl, and it is different each time, and we usually do not top it with a fried egg as they do in Austria.
      Ingredients

      All your meat leftovers
      Onion (compulsory)
      Any hard vegetable (we prefer celery stalks, or zucchini)
      Any salad (iceberg lettuce or endive/chicory or any other salad leaves, may contain carrot julienne)
      Fried potatoes, or alternatively sweetcorn kernels
      Sherry or wine or bouillon or the gravy you preserved from your last LTLT.cooked meat for simmering (I usually prefer Sherry)
      Eventually some cream (or crème fraîche)
      Salt, pepper, parsley, caraway seeds (typical for Tyrolean Gröstl), paprika, condiment (in Switzerland we use "Aromat" by Knorr, which contains sodium chloride, sodium glutamate, lactose, starch, yeast extract, vegetable fats, onions, spices, E552)'
      vegetable oil (I prefer olive oil)




      Mise en place

      cut your meat in small cubes or slices
      cut the onion(s) not too fine (place the first cut below your tongue to avoid tearing during cutting)
      cut the vegetables about 3-4 mm thick
      cut the salads to pieces smaller than 4 cm, distribute on the cutting board and season deliberately
      cut the potatoes to 1 cm cubes
      place 3 heavy skillets with ample oil on the stove

      Cooking

      in skillet 1, stir-fry the onions, add the hard vegetables still stir-frying, add salad, add sufficient liquid (Sherry or wine or bouillon or gravy) for simmering under a cover until soft. If desired, reduce heat and add some cream at the end.
      in skillet 2, stir-fry the potatoes until soft (in case of sweetcorn kernels, add to skillet 1 after stir-frying and use skillet 2 for skillet 3)
      in skillet 3, as soon as the vegetables and the potatoes are soft, sear the meat in just smoking oil for 30-60 seconds, then add to skillet 1

      Serving
      You may mix the potatoes with the vegetables and meat to make a rather typical Gröstl, or serve the fried potatoes separately; we prefer the latter, as the potatoes stay more crunchy.
      Do not forget to serve a glass of good dry red wine!

      Brisket „Stroganoff“ Sous Vide With Mixed Mushrooms

      Ingredients for 2 servings
      about 400g well marbled Brisket
      3 tablespoons rice bran oil or other high smoke point oil (grapeseed oil)
      3 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
      3 tablespoons Cognac (brandy)
      2 small onions, finely diced
      ½ yellow or red bell peppers cut into strips
      90 g mixed mushrooms
      100 ml of gravy from last Brisket (or concentrated stock)
      1 teaspoon mustard, Dijon type
      1 teaspoon paprika mild (not spicy!)
      1 medium pickled cucumber cut into thin strips
      2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
      approx. 120g sour cream with herbs
      Sous Vide - cooking
      Marinate brisket with Mexican style (medium hot) marinade in the vacuum bag for at least 3 days at 1 ° C, cook sous vide 48 hours at 55.0 ° C.
      Preparing the sauce
      At a moderate heat sauté onions in olive oil, add peppers (preblanched in the microwave oven for 2-3 minutes) and mushroom mixture, stir-fry, remove from heat and add the gravy. Add pickled cucumber, pepper, mustard and cognac. Put on very low heat, add sour cream and keep warm, but do not boil as the cream will separate. Remove the brisket from the bag, cut into strips (about 8x10x35mm), sear very quickly in smoking-hot rice bran oil, add the meat and the parsley to the sauce.
      Serving
      Serve on warmed plates. Typically served with spätzle (south German) or chnöpfli (Swiss).
      And don't forget a glass of good red wine!
      Enjoy your meal!

      † Beef, pork, lamb and chicken (or at least two kinds of meat) as well as chorizo, chickpeas and onions are mandatory ingredients, other vegetables vary according to desire and availability.
      Cooking
      Boil chickpeas in water for 30-60 min.
      Sauté onions in olive oil, add chorizo, continue sautéing, add chickpeas including its cooking water, add remaining vegetables, cover and cook to the desired softness, stir from time to time. If additional liquid is needed, you may add Sherry instead of water.
      Reduce heat. Season to taste. Add parsley.
      In a heavy skillet, sear the meat dice in just smoking hot rice bran oil (very high smoking point allows very quick sear, not overdoing the center of the meat).
      Sear one kind of meat at a time and transfer to the pan with the vegetables.
