OK, one more post about flat irons, then I'll shut up. Did another one for tonight's dinner (no pics - sorry). So simple - this time I just rubbed with pressed garlic, S&P and EVOO. First I grilled some zucchini slices tossed in EVOO, S&P and oregano - about 400°. Pulled the veges and ran her up close to 600°. Steak 90 seconds per side, then flipped a few more times until my Polder Pocket Thermometer* said I was at 125°. 10 minute rest before YUM!!! I've never had better zucchini. I've never had better steak at the price I paid for these flat irons. 'nuff said.

*There are frequently conversations about instant-read thermometers on this forum. While I have no doubt that the $95 Thermapen is wonderful, I have a $15 Polder Pocket Thermometer and I think it is great. I don't doubt that the Thermapen is quicker, but I find my Polder to be plenty fast enough for my needs.

    If you are getting the results you want, no need to change. The rest is just eye candy. ;)
    IMHO, Flat Irons is the best steak buy on the market.

    I keep reading about these flat irons, what the heck are they? My local Safeway butchers (I know, that is a stretch) have no idea what they are.

    You may need a new butcher :)

    Look at this link (provided by Ar-Cee)

    http://ard.unl.edu/rn/0302/steak.html

    and you'll learn all and more than you need to know about flat irons. Short story is that they come from a particular muscle in the chuck that is more tender than others. With lots of flavor.

    But then I said 'nuff said. What's wrong with me?

    I know, Safeway butcher is an oxy moron! (is that how you spell it?)

    There is a reason Safeway doesn't have any stores near me. :woohoo: Don't know what to tell you. A lot of Butchers are going to give you crap.
