    HolySmokes,[p]TREX, but be careful because its a thin cut. I like DP's Red Eye Express because its a more robust flavor to match the beefy taste.

    <p />HolySmokes,
    one of my favorite things to do with flat irons is trex sear them, then rest and slice and add to a cast iron skillet or dutch oven with some cooked down onions and baby portobello mushrooms and butter and some good crusty bread to soak up the resulting gravy[p]ya mon[p]flatironsteak-029-1.jpg[p]032_1.jpg

  • Metalhead,
    sounds good

  • Haggis,
    TREX sounds right, but this IS thin, so it's gonna hafta be a short one.
    thanks, HS

  • Rick's Tropical Delight,
    I'm hungry already.[p]Just happen to have a swarm of portobellos. Now I know what to do with them![p]thanks, HS

    HolySmokes,[p]I did some Flat Iron last weekend for the first time, and I would recommend pulling them at 130 deg, 135 max. They're not kidding, it's a thin cut of meet, and almost like a flank steak.[p]You'll enjoy it if you've never had it before; they're surprisingly tasty and tender![p]-Mike[p]

    <p />Beanie-Bean,
    i'm saying even less than that. just do the 90 second per side trex sear at 700 and lay in a bed of vidalia onion and you are good to go!

    Rick's Tropical Delight,[p]I'll have to try that one...that looks outstanding! I think that I have a little cast iron lodge pan to do the onions. also.[p]Thanks for the tip![p]-Mike[p]
  • Rick's Tropical Delight,

    rest of dinner :) HAR no-one compained :)[p]all best, HS
