Flat iron steak

The new steak on the block! Find out why this lean steak cut which is popular in the States is finding favour with British cooks too.

The flat iron steak has been popular in the States for years and has just started gaining favour here in Britain too. Taking its name from its similarity in shape to the old fashioned style of a flat iron, it’s a lean cut from the shoulder, which is tender and flavourful and at its best when cooked medium rare or medium- this is not the steak for you if you like yours well done. It is great for marinating for the BBQ and is the perfect everyday steak as it is cheaper than the more traditional steak cuts so why not give it a try.
