Flat Iron

Sale price Price $37.00 Regular price

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.

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).
