Prime Flat Iron Steak, also known as a top blade steak, is an economical and highly flavorful steak cut from the chuck/shoulder section of the forequarter.
Even though the chuck is usually associated with stewing and braising cuts, the Flat Iron Steak boasts tenderness that rivals that of more premium steaks, while its beefy flavor is hearty and compares to skirt or hanger steak.
Preparing Flat Iron Steak
While many recipes recommend marinating a flat iron steak before cooking, there’s no need to do so with our Prime Flat Iron. Just brush it with olive oil, add fresh cracked pepper and some sea salt, then sear it in a hot grill pan, under the broiler, or on the grill for about 3 minutes per side, and you’ve got great eating in just about no time.
