Keep an Eye Out....

Our local Kroger stores have just stated carrying this "new" cut of steak, it is called a Flat Iron steak. Never heard of it, so in googling it, it seems that this is a rather new cut of meat from the shoulder and getting some good reviews. Suppose to be a tender, flavorful, steak. You might want to keep an eye out for it in your local stores and give it a try, if you haven't already.

Its also labeled in some areas as a top blade. But it is very good & simular to chuck eyes

Flat Iron steak is a blade steak with the hard center gristle removed,it is second in tenderness to prime rib hence making it a very nice cut to cook.The problem is many restaurants buy this cut,so it can be some what hard to find.Try it you will like it and its usually sold at a reasonable price.

Flat, iron, and steak together in the same sentence just isn't right to me.

That cut is not well known. Some meat counters cut them across the gristle line which products a slice of meat (1" thick) the size of a fillet, with a nasty piece of gristle running down the middle. Some call this a butter-fly steak. If the gristle is cut out it looks like a meat finger (more difficult to cook right). If the whole piece is cut along the gristle, them you get a nice 3/4" steak called flat iron. It is very tender and much cheaper than more chewy-er stuff. If you see it when looking for steak, by all means grab it.

If it Floats, Flys or F$$$s, it always cheaper to rent.
