Chuckwagon Steak Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Chuckwagon Steak which belongs to the Beef recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 2 to 2 pounds (910 g to 1.1 kg) boneless beef chuck steak, 1 to 2
  2. inches (4 to 5 cm) thick
  3. 2 teaspoons meat tenderizer
  4. 1 cup (240 ml) olive oil
  5. cup (60 ml) cider vinegar
  6. cup (160 ml) lime juice

Cooking Instructions

Sprinkle half the tenderizer evenly over one side of the chuck and pierce the meat all over with a fork.

Turn it over and repeat on the other side using the other teaspoon of tenderizer.

Now, put the meat in a flat, shallow, nonreactive pan that fits it fairly closely or in a big resealable plastic bag.

Mix together the rest of the ingredients and pour them over the steak.

If you're using a bag, press out the air, seal it up, and turn it a few times to coat the whole piece of meat.

If you're using a pan, turn the meat to coat it.

Stick the whole thing in the fridge, and let the meat marinate for at least several hours, turning it a few times.

When dinnertime rolls around (or actually a bit beforehand), get a grill going?you'll want your charcoal to be white or your gas grill on medium or a touch higher.

Just pull the steak out and grill it?about 12 minutes per side puts it at about the degree of doneness I like, but you cook it to your liking; then slice it across the grain.

This is great plain, but it's also a good choice to serve with the Cilantro Chimichurri

Serving Yield

6 servings

Nutrition Information

If you consumed all of the marinade, each serving would have 3 grams of carbohydrate and a trace of fiber, but of course, you drain the marinade off. I'd count no more than 1 gram of carbohydrate per serving, and I suspect that's a generous estimate; 30 grams of protein. Analysis does not include Cilantro Chimichurri.
