The Second Most Tender Cut on the Entire Beef: Flat Iron Steak

The Second Most Tender Cut on the Entire Beef: Flat Iron Steak

The Flat Iron steak comes from the chuck subprimal of the animal, and is the second most tender cut after the tenderloin. It's often considered to be an ultra-tender alternative to the ribeye. It's known as the "Butler's Steak" in the UK, and "Oyster Blade Steak" in Australia and New Zealand. The Flat Iron can be grilled, pan-broiled, broiled, stir-fried, or cut into cubes for kabobs.
