Flat Iron Steaks on the Mini

I had to cut the two steaks in half to fit on the Mini corectly :) Rubbed with a little Dale's Sauce, then my steak seasoning. They went on the grill at 500-550° for 3 minutes a side.[p]22695451_21585abd6e_o.jpg[p]They were awesome! Looks like a small serving, but I went back for seconds ;) Steamed Ginger Carrots and Broccolini. Deelishous, if I say so myself. Extremely, extremely TENDER and TASTY.[p]22695452_e7b6cb9d5f_o.jpg

    Thanks for the demonstration.
    I hope my grocers beef section has some. A very good way to serve tender beef when entertaining many at low cost.

    did you marinate for those any length of time?

  • RumrunnerRumrunner Posts: 563
    Groundfish, no marinating at all. Well, I did rub with a light coating of Dale's Sauce, but I only use it for flavor. They sat for about three hours in the fridge after seasoning.

    Around here, those cuts don't exist. There just was an article in the Wall Street J. about the marketing of lesser meat cuts to replace the expensive loin cuts. One of the items mentioned was the "flat iron" steak. Isn't this just a piece of the chuck (shoulder) cut away from the blade? Maybe Chef Will can enlightened us. Have a great holiday!

    Marvin, there is an explanation to that effect a few threads below with Dr.BBQ.[p]By the way, 'those cuts' exist every where, people need to know how to ask for them and the meat personnel have to take the time and initative to look it up. A good butcher will take the time to help/keep/retain a customer. You won't find that in chain supermarkets or the box/discount stores.

    I should have looked a bit further. Thanks for the cutting lesson. I can do that! You're absolutely right about personal butchers and small shops: quickly disappearing. Even our "famous" Wegman's grocer has reduced their number of butchers for pre-packaged cuts. Have a great weekend!
