The Flat Iron steak (also known as a top blade steak) is an under-appreciated steak that has been gaining in popularity in recent years as an intensely flavored and economical alternative to more expensive cuts. The Flat Iron is a nicely marbled cut from the shoulder and when cooked properly, a Flat Iron steak turns out tender and juicy. This steak is great on its own or used in tacos or sandwiches. You will receive approximately 11 oz of Flat Iron steak.
Cooking Tips: The flat iron steak can benefit from a marinade or a dry rub, much like a Flank Steak, but can also be grilled with a simple coating of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Sear at high heat then finish at a lower temperature to bring out the best flavor of this cut. Just don’t overcook because it can turn out a little tough. We do not recommend cooking Flat Iron beyond medium; in fact, our preferred temperature is medium rare or around 135 F (60 C).
