If you've never tried a Flat Iron Steak, its a cut from the Chuck and is highly marbled and considered as tender as Filet Mignon. I'm not gonna argue!

1 lb CAB Flat Iron rubbed up with a bit of Olive oil and David Klose spice mix.

Fired up the gasser, laid a cast iron skillet down and sauteed some Asparagus

Oiled up the CI grates and set the steak on for @ 7 minutes per side, turning 1/4 for those killer grill marks.

Slice at an angle and serve!

I'm a flat Iron fan from way back. Thanx for the pix Brian!

Have you ever used it for fajitas? If you do, you'll never go back to flank or skirt.

I find it whole ( top blade) frequently for around $2.50#. Seems like they double or triple the price if they separate the two halves and call it Flat Iron.:shrug:
