Our local Kroger had a special on flat iron steaks. I picked one up to try. What is the difference between a flat iron steak and a flank steak and how do you recommend that I prepare it?[p]Thanks.[p]Smoke Diver

    Smoke Diver,[p]Cook it TRex style - that is, hot sear followed by a roast at lower temps. Its a great cut! I often use Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express on this because the meat has so much flavor. [p]Regarding comparisons with flank - it is much less striated but is otherwise similar - I often cook flank steaks the same way.

    Smoke Diver,[p]I woould agree with most of what Haggis said below![p]You can also get your Egg to about 500 (direct) and just grill (flipping every 3-4 minutes) for about 12-16 mins...depending on your likes.[p]P10100272-1.jpg[p]You'll get gereat resaults either way![p]It's cut specifically to be inexpensive...but very tender, and it is.[p]One of the few meats I'll buy at Kroger.[p]Evans

  • This is where the Thermapen comes in handy I use mine on everything but it is best on Flat iron steak to get it to the right temp to pull and serve I usually pull mine at 145* and that is perfect for us.
