Flat Iron Steak
Also known as a top-blade steak, this little cut is an inexpensive solution to a steak craving. It tends to be a bit more tender than its neighboring cuts and can actually be grilled or seared with great success. Watch out though, it does tend to have some connective tissue, so we recommend that you slice it (against the grain!) before serving so you can cut out any tough parts. It's perfect for carne-asada style tacos or to serve alongside a chimichurri sauce. If you’re a fan of flank or skirt steaks, you’ll like the flat iron.
