Eye of the round vs chuck for beef stew?

MsBees | Mar 5, 201308:40 AM     11

My local store has eye of the round on sale for 3.99 a lb and chuck for 4.99 a lb. I figured I would buy a few roasts, trim off all the fat and cut them myself into stew pieces. This weekend I will be cooking 2 brunches and 2 dinners for 24 people. So price does matter but does not matter so much that I want an inferior stew.

Which would you buy? And do you think I can trust the butcher to cut it or is it safer for me to cut it at home?

Thanks in advance for your help.
