Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches

The next day after the storm hit us pretty good we had a taste for some steak.  However, our butcher was closed that day because of the snow so we went to Whole Foods and got 1 3/4 lb Flat Iron steak and grilled it up....I dusted it with some Cow Lick Seasoning

Yep my 5 year old son thought it'd be great to photo bomb the picture so I let him :)


I got the Egg up to about 650 or so and let me tell you I really do miss my CI grates I now know I will be buying it within the month because i miss them so much!

I got the internal temp of the Flat Iron to about 140 and let it rest for 8 minutes...


WE bought some pretzel rolls as well from Whole Foods.  I sauteed up some peppers and onions, spread some garlic herb mayo on the sandwich and topped with Mozzarella Cheese


Sandwich was great, I still can't decide which seasoning I like more "Raising the Steaks" or "Cow Lick"

    Interesting, it is not just me. 

    When I cook flat iron steaks, it always looks more rare than flank steak at the same temp.  For example, I cook it to 130-135f for "med rare" and it looks more like rare.  That doesn't bother me at all, just something I have noticed. 

    Seeing yours pulled at 140f to me it looks more like med rare. 

    I'd devour one of those sandwiches right now!

    I wonder if it has anything to do with how the cow ate?  This by no means is a real conclusion but I have noticed that my grass fed beef comes out rarer looking at temps that shouldn't be...

    Your boy's a trip! haha. Steak looks delicious. It's been a long time since I've grilled a flat iron.

    Nice work. Flat iron is the best tasting dollar for dollar out there IMO.

    Hailing from the city of brotherly love I give it two thumbs up!
    I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.
