I have 4+ lbs of beef chuck steak in my freezer. I was wondering if I could use those to make beef stew, or if I would be better off with beef chuck roast. The steaks are 1-1 1/4" thick, frozen. Thank you!

    I like the idea of using what you have. Eventually it is going to get freezer burn and not be as good. Stew is a great destiny for freezer meet. – Willk Mar 3 '19 at 20:15

A chuck steak is simply cut into slices more ideal for grilling whereas a roast is left in larger thicker shapes more ideal for roasting. Once you break them down into stew shape either is viable.

  • Exactly, it's the same meat. – GdD Mar 3 '19 at 20:21
  • Though steaks are often priced higher because of the extra labor involved. – Lee Daniel Crocker Mar 5 '19 at 1:07
  • @LeeDanielCrocker sometimes, but when cleaning out your freezer such concerns aren't as important. – AGirlHasNoName Mar 5 '19 at 1:31
