More Flat Iron Steak Fun

This time around, I cooked a flat iron steak that had been seasoned with sea salt and fresh black pepper in a blend of sesame and extra virgin olive oils to somewhere between medium and medium well. I sliced it up and served the meat on some sourdough bread topped with pan drippings deglazed with balsamic vinegar and a baby lettuce salad on the side:

This was probably the best flat iron that I have made in some time. The sourdough flavor reacted well with the sweet-tart taste of the deglaze and the texture of the meat. Thank you, Kroger, for keeping this cut of meat in stock despite the economic meltdown.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 Alex the Butchers.

Flatiron steaks have quickly become one of my favorite cuts. It's cheaper than flank or skirt, which are my usual go-to cuts. Marinaded for 24 hours in a little vermouth, soy sauce, and minced garlic, you got yourself some real good eats on a budget.
