Any dinner ideas for steak?

I have some chuck steak for pan frying.

Anyone got any ideas for maybe dicing it up or serving it a certain way?

    2 to 2-1/2 lb. Beef chuck, cubed
    1 tbsp. Olive oil, divided
    1 ( 14.5-oz.) Can Beef Broth
    1 (15-oz.) can Tomato Puree
    3/4 cup Red Wine
    1/3 cup flour
    2 tsp. herbes de Provence
    1 (8.5-oz.) Jar Pearl Onions, drained
    1 (6-oz.) package Portabellini mushrooms, quartered
    salt and pepper to taste
    Brown beef in hot oil in large Dutch oven until well browned on all sides. Stir together broth, tomato puree, wine, flour and herbs and pour over beef. Bring to a boil; cover and cook for 30 minutes more or until beef is very tender and sauce is thickened. Season to taste with salt/pepper.
    Serve with mashed or roasted potatoes.

  • If you could manage to cut it up into chunks... you can add a couple of cans of Rotel (Tomatoes and Green Chilies), 1 can of tomato sauce, and 1-2 cans of tomato paste...

    Serving that on a bed of spanish rice and top with either x-sharp cheddar, Monterary jack or Pepper jack.

    It's sorta like steak ranchero in a way.

  • Cube and brown the steak, remove from pan, saute onion, green pepper and red pepper until tender, add mushrooms if you have them. Add steak to pan with peppers. Make a sauce with soy sauce, sugar, ginger, mustard, sesame oil and water and cornstarch.
    Pour over the steak and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Serve with rice and so yummy and quick.

  • My family really likes it this way:
    Baked Chuck Steak
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1/2 pkg. dry onion soup mix
    1 chuck steak
    1/2 cup beef broth
    Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together
    soup, onion soup mix, and beef broth. Place round steak in a
    casserole dish and pour soup mixture over the steak. Bake for about
    3 hours. Serve with rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.

  • I would chop it up and make chili with it.

  • Ditto scout mom - but I'd braise the meat and then save it until I was about ready to serve the meal so the meat wouldn't be overcooked.

  • Mmmmm...sorry, that's all I have to offer. I don't eat red meat very often and it sounds super good right now.

  • I don't eat beef, but my husband does and he read an article about spicing it up and cooking inside a ziploc bag in simmering water, then searing it on a grill or even using a butane lighter. It was in a Men's Fitness or Men's Health magazine. It supposed to come out super juicy and tender this way. It's very unconventional...but who knows? It could be great. Here's a forum where people are talking about it.
