    BENTE,[p]I'm not Max, and I may be wrong, but I think I've heard them referred to as skirt steaks.[p]Cheers,[p]John

    newbs,
    i don't think thats right. max says he can only get them from one butcher in his area. i have seen skirt steak here. he keeps raving about them and i did see one at eggtoberfest but max had it and i missed it so i am scouring my area looking for a source and someone said they are named something else
    thanks

    BENTE,
    What Max showed me in ATL didn't look anything like a skirt steak, I can't find them here either. -RP

    AZRP,
    yea it didnt to me either but i wasn't close enough to it but all the skirt steak i have seen is rather small or dainty(sp) but i went to publix (i LOVE that store!!!) and the ALWAYS friendly meat guys said they are going to speak to the regional guys and apparently they talk to the distributors and see if they can even order me one. if not i will need all the info i can because some of the local guys may not know what i'm talking about. the people at publix said it is a cut near the brisket and since MAX is the "local" expert

    Many times it's ground for burger.[p]The pics below are of a couple of pieces about 8 ins long.[p]You can sometimes get as many as 3 this size ,from 1 cut.[p]Below, they've been marinated in brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, pepper, and soy sauce.[p]HangerSteak3.jpg[p]Cooked hot and direct...(much like a skirt steak) and allowd to
    to rest...they are a thing of "Bovine Beauty"!![p]HangerSteak4.jpg[p]Definately...sear'em if you can find'em!![p]HangerSteak6.jpg
    [p]Happy hunting!![p]Evans[p][p]

    Tn Slagamater,[p]Nope. Flat iron is from the shoulder, I think. Hanger is from the diaphragm. Or vice versa - I can't keep the straight. They are similar in appearance though. I buy mine the same place Max buys his hangers. Flat iron seems to be the "in" thing among restaurants these days.
