The Denver steak is a hidden gem and one very few butcher shops carry. We love this cut because it is incredibly versatile. Our preferred cooking method is to sous vide, then char it on the grill. You can also braise it like short ribs, or sear it in a hot cast iron pan. Regardless of the preparation method, be prepared for dry aged meaty goodness.
The Denver steak comes from a large muscle below the chuck eye in the beef’s shoulder. While out on pasture, the shoulder gets quite the workout, so denver steaks have a bit of a bite to them, but the flavor is amazing!.
This cut is incredibly versatile. Our preferred method is to sous vide them at 125 degrees for ~4 hours to tenderize. To finish, let them cool down, pat dry, season with plenty of salt, and char them with high heat. You can also braise low and slow, or simply season with salt and pepper and toss it in a hot cast iron skillet. Keep it rare. This cut has tons of flavor.
