I'm not asking you to, dude. I asked you to clarify your post and you decided it would be fun to be coy and roll your eyes at me. If you want to call a roast a steak at your house, I couldn't care less. But this thread will be here for posterity and I feel that future readers should have accurate information.

Now I'm really getting a taste for swiss (little "s" - thanks, TL) steak. Off to the store. Hopefully they have some cube steak.

Dumb question: people keep talking about onion gravy. Is it different from making a regular meat based gravy and adding onion to the drippings to sauté? Or is it a totally different animal?
Mine is like you say.

Thanks for that I always assumed it was a grilled steak with a slice of gruyere cheese on it. Durr!

The cut I use is also called a steak, dude.

Chuck steak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I agree, future readers should have accurate information.
