You want some cut of chuck. Chuck is tough which means they get to get some chewing action in which dogs love. Because it's so tough and the meat worked a lot, it has a lot of flavor. The steaks we humans like are great because they are tender but tender meat has less flavor. Steaks are cut from roasts and roasts from primal sections. The more you process a cut of meat the more expensive it gets. That's why I buy roasts and cut my own steaks out of them.

If you're dogs are not used to bones, it might cause problems. Bones can cause tummy troubles for dogs who don't eat raw bone regularly.  And raw bones can be much harder than most chews dogs today encounter which could result in a cracked tooth. If your dogs have had raw bone experience, and you can find them, a bone in brisket might be good.............but finding those is really rare.

I would buy a nice big chuck roast or seven bone roast and remove the bone yourself. Too much fat might cause diarrhea. I would look for one with slight to medium marbling. Your dogs will love it. If you can find them this late in the season, I would follow with a really large femur bone so your pooch babies can gnaw after eating.

Since you're only going to feed this for one meal, you don't need to worry about balancing out calcium and phosphorus.

So, go chuck. It's less expensive, easily sourced, has great flavor, and fun to chew.

I want some steak.  After your dogs get theirs, I will take mine cooked.  Okay? Cheesy
I actually never thought about getting a roast and steaking it out.  That is a good idea for us human meat eaters too.

I have 3 rotties and they get steak pretty regularly. Filet mignon[?] T-bone ,Sirloin, Hamburger and sometimes
ostrich and gator tail .  It may sound like a joke but I have a friend in the food salvage business and sometimes he is
loaded with frozen meats that is too far out of date to sell. He gives some of it to me for the crew.   But there ain't
no telling what he will have from one time to the next.   Kaya[daddy's little girl] and Mauser will eat it all .   But
Chopper has to have his beef cooked.  Just a little cooked or a lot, no difference. but not raw.   Strange. 
I bought a quarter ton of chicken leg quarters last week to grind and to freeze as is.  That boy that works in the food lion  meat department didn't even bat an eye whenI told  him I wanted 500 pounds of quarters.  he just told me to pull around back.  When I got there he was there with it on a pallet jack.We were talking about it as we were loading it up and he seemed surprised That I was feeding raw.  I told him like I was told..   When your ancestors
killed a fox or a wolf or a dog for that matter on the farm , it was for killing calves or chickens or other farm
animals, NOT for raiding the corncrib or munchin  ' down on the watermelons or molesting the wheat field..
   When I grind meat for them I grind bone and all.    Cooked bone is a no-no.     Doc.. blah blah
