I'll update later after the blind taste test...
OK bad news for all the meat snobs, the chuck eye won. It was more tender AND flavorful, and the lady next door thought it was nice that the fat that was in it were chunks large enough to cut away. But she drinks white wine, so I sorta discounted her opinion for the most part. Not to mention, I often times eat the fat...
In the end I was the only one who knew which was which (they never even saw the before pics), but even I had to admit that the chuck eye was not only equal, but had a better flavor and texture. Better cow perhaps?? Either way, at a $7.99 per pound difference even a tie in flavor and texture would have meant that the chuck eye won.
We've (the accountant and I!!) decided that neighborhood grill-outs over the fire pit - I've made my own fire pit modification!!!
- just got much more affordable. LOL, like that matters!
