Best Ever Grilled Chuck Steak

Recipe by ellie_
READY IN: 24hrs 20mins


  • 4
    chuck steaks (or other inexpensive steaks)
  • 1
    (16 ounce) bottle yellow mustard (I used French's)
  • vegetable oil


  • Trim all but 1/4 - 1/2 inch fat from sides of steaks and then slash remaining fat with a knife at 1-inch intervals. Spread 1/4 inch of mustard over both sides of steaks -- do not coat sides of steak with the mustard. Place steaks in a shallow dish large enough to hold steaks in one layer and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature 2 hours before grilling.
  • Prepare grill. I used charcoal sprinkled with wood chips.
  • Brush grids with oil.
  • Sear steaks over hot coals (or high heat) for one minute per side. Than adjust grids so steaks are over medium hot heat (on my grill I lower the grill grates or you can move the steaks so they are on the outer edges of the coal to reduce heat). Grill for 7-10 minutes on one side (7 minutes for rare, 8-9 for medium, and 10 for well). Turn steaks and grill for 8-12 minutes (8 minutes for rare, 9-10 for medium rare, 11-12 for well done).
  • To serve, transfer steaks to serving platter or carving board and let stand 5 minutes before cutting across the grain into slices 1/4 inch thick or serve steaks whole.
