Chuck Wagon Steak for a Covered Wagon Dinner

Chuck Wagon Steak, for the “Cowboys” in your house:) Chuck Wagon Steak . . . the image that comes to mind, to me, are cowboys!

It does for me:) What do you think of when you hear “Covered Wagons”? I think about the old west, cattle drives, western movies, and more.
