First Flap Steak

I think I like this better than flank steak.  I also think I will like it a little more well done.  The Thermapen registered this at 135 after resting.

    Is flap steak the same as carne asada?

    Carne Asada simply means grilled steak. Can be anything.

    it's part of the sirloin/top butt but I'm not quite sure which part. I'll buy a whole top butt and see if I can find it and report back. Those things are a bear to break down and I'm not a huge sirloin guy but I am curious. I do love flap and tri-tip though and all that is mixed in there somehow (I think)

    Costco and Sams carry flap near me all the time.

    I find it overrated.  Would much rather skirt steak, but many people love it.

    As some here will attest to, there is hardly ever a cook I do that does not include veggies on the Egg.

    I saw it Costco last weekend, but passed on it assuming I could find it at the regular grocery store.

    I've never heard of flap steak until recently. Must say, the more I see it the more intrigued I am. Gonna have to find one soon.

    Yours looks like it was cooked up perfectly. What temp were you cooking at?

    It looks like what my local latin markets carry as carne asada, I will check.. they usually simply call it carne asada, but I will ask what cut they use. If it is flap steak then it is a good cut. I like it cut thin in California burritos.

    About 450, but darn it I forgot to lower the grid.  We don't do a lot of steak, and I keep forgetting to adjust the grid.

    I have lost 20lbs since buying my egg. When chicken is so good BBQ'd on the egg I a lot more of it.

    I have decided I do not want to be in Hawaii this September bigger than I want. I don't want to look back 5 yrs from now and regret my weight.

    Ok, I am now off my tangent, hahah

    America's Test Kitchen suggested that flap steak is the best meat to grind for hamburgers.  I believe they add some softened butter to increase the fat content.

    Saw an episode on "Meat Men", and one place uses bacon fat back to raise the fat content of their burgers (short ribs, plus something else)

    All to get cheaper brisket!

    I've used bacon before and that works great!  I mean it's bacon!!  The butter is a great idea...
