The flat iron is carved from the chuck subprimal, and more specifically, the top muscle blade. There are only two top blade roasts in every animal – each weighs 1-1.5 pounds. It’s a tiny part of the animal, but it is extremely tender and well-marbled.
The location gives the flat iron fantastic marbling for a bold, beefy flavor, similar to a New York Strip. The careful carving by our processors results in a fork-tender texture, like a filet mignon. It’s a truly unique and delicious steak experience.
A flat iron is very versatile and may be cooked by several methods. It’s great in steak recipes like stir-frys or steak fajitas. It can also be grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. The fine marbling will cook into the steak, creating a juicy, flavorful steak when cooked to perfect medium-rare doneness, with just some coarse sea salt and fresh black pepper—Cook to perfection indoors using the pan-seared method or outdoors on the grill.
