You Don't Have to Spend A Lot For a Tasty Steak

Have a hankering for a steak but just cannot bring yourself to pay the high cost of a good T-Bone, porterhouse, or even sirloin? Most people do not believe me when I tell them that I can make a blade steak that will be tender and flavorful.

Blade, Chuck, and Shoulder Steak Are All the Same

Cook Times Will Vary Depending on Thickness and How You Like Your Meat Cooked

Will depend on how much steak you cook


  • 2-3 pounds of Blade steak
  • 10 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 10 shakes or to taste Garlic Powder or Granulated Garlic
  • 10 shakes or to taste Montreal Steak Seasoning


  1. If the blade steak is fairly thick, pound it with a meat mallet on both sides. If the steak is not that thick, just place in a dish, and stab it all over with a sharp knife. (This is a great way to get out your aggressions while cooking.)
  2. Put the steak into a glass dish or a marinating tray, and stab with a sharp knife all over.
  3. Douse the steak with Worcestershire sauce so that it is soaked. Season with garlic powder or granulated garlic and Montreal steak seasoning. Cover and refrigerate for at least three hours.
  4. When you are ready to cook, either fire up the grill or preheat the broiler in your oven. If you are going to broil, use the top rack in your oven.
  5. I prefer my meat rare and find that with this cut of meat, the more you cook it, the tougher it will become. I tend to serve this rare to medium-rare.

I have never heard of blade steak Susan. I wonder if it's the same as flank steak here? I'll for sure find out! Sounds great and I have a meat mallet. I love pounding on that meat to get those daily frustrations out! LOL

I always thought blade steak was a rather tough cut of meat, Susan, but from your great recipe and explanation you are almost forcing me to give it a go. With garlic of course.

Gordon I stole a line out of a book I read and now when I order a steak in a restaurant I always say I want it cooked so that I can still still hear it moo.
