Flat Iron Steak junkie

This stuff has me hooked.All of the beef flavor of a bone in sirloin steak is in there plus the tenderness of a rib eye without all of the fat that is that cut.Almost as tender as the tenderloin if you do not cook it past medium.I found a small grocer that knew what I was talking about when I asked for a flat iron chuck and told him to cut me up about eight of them.They normally run around a pound and a half.When you ask for this stuff tell the butcher that you love it for hamburger.All I paid was $2.89 per lb.If this stuff gets to climb up the beef chart it will probably be selling for $5.99 lb. You have to try it out. Cook like a flank or skirt steak and see WHAT YOU THINK. Great stuff.

  • I have pink eye so my vision is a little funky. When I first read the title of this thread, I thought it said, "Flat Iron Steak juice." I did a total Homer Simpson, "Mmmmmmmm.....steak juice......"

    I agree as I just finished my first Flat Iron and it was just as you said tender and less fat thatn my former rib eye!
  • I did a quick search on this cut and am including the link for Wikipedia. I may have to pick some up for dinner last night.
