  • 2 chuck eye steaks, 1-1.5 inches thick
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the Homemade Barbecue Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp Hungarian paprika
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp 2 cloves mashed garlic
  • 1 tsp coarsely ground cracked black pepper 



For the Homemade Barbecue Sauce: 

  1. Mix well, and place this simple barbecue sauce in a pot. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally making sure it doesn’t burn.
  2. Completely cool in the refrigerator, allowing flavors a few hours to meld. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. 

Grilling a Chuck Steak:

  1. Remove steaks from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking, allowing them to warm to room temperature for even cooking and maximum tenderness.
  2. Heat one half of the grill to medium-high, leaving the other side off.
  3. Pat dry the steaks with paper towels to remove excess moisture. Then rub in the salt and ground pepper followed by the olive oil.
  4. Preheat grill to medium-high. The grates should be hot enough before the steak goes on.
  5. Brush the grates with oil to prevent sticking. Place the chuck eye steaks on the cool side of the grill for 25-30 minutes for a medium-rare steak.
  6. Then move the steaks to the hot side and sear for 1-2 minutes per side.
  7. Insert an instant meat thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. Remove from the grill at 130°F (54°C) for medium-rare. The temperature will rise a few degrees more while resting.
  8. Transfer the steak to a plate, covering with aluminium foil, and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
  9. Serve it with steamed asparagus and tomato then drizzle some homemade barbecue sauce on the top of the steak.
