Flat Iron Steak:
The Flat Iron Steak comes from the shoulder on top of the blade bone & is called Feather-blade when both muscles are together. Our expert butchers split both muscles & remove the silver membrane to leave two separate flat steak pieces.
Each of the muscles has great natural marbling in them as you would expect from good graded beef. The marbling then adds to the flavour of the beef & keeps it moist during your cook. The Flat Iron Steak is great when cooked whole & left a little “Pink” inside. Once rested for 10 mins after cooking, you then slice the Flat Iron at an acute angle to make thin wide succulent steaks that are tender & full of flavour.
The Flat Iron Steak is excellent value for money because there is no waste for you to trim off & we have priced these to be a more affordable, interesting piece to cook.
We pack our Flat Iron Steak into a clear recyclable pouch immediately after they are cut to give as fresher product possible & to give a longer shelf life. As our meats are all produced at very low temperatures, the pouches keep all the natural moisture locked into the meat to stop them from bleeding & reducing their weight. We have single packed these flat so they keep their shape when thawing out & they are much easier to store in the freezer at home.
A juicy steak is found on most menus in a restaurant & these can be quite expensive; the Flat Iron Steak is becoming more popular & there are even restaurants named “Flat Iron” in the UK & Europe.

The no-waste steak piece that we have created is a great value for money for easy to slice steaks at home a real treat for the family or just because you enjoy affordable steaks.

These Flat Iron Steaks are of big interest in the BBQ world as they are quick & easy to cook with simple seasoning & a few delicious sides. They always give great results as guests love the steaks & find them tender, tasty as well as different than the normal steaks on the menu at home.
These are not always needed to be cooked outside on the BBQ, they are just as easy to cook in the kitchen! A skillet or in the pan is so simple & quick for midweek meals when late home from the office. The main thing when cooking a steak is to let it rest after the cook for 10 mins to allow the meat to relax to improve the texture n’ flavour.
These are very similar looking to the beef Flank Steak we have available on our menu but they have slightly different grain or texture to the meat. They both deliver excellent results with a slight difference in chewing experience. You can check the link for the Difference between Flat Iron Steak & Flank Steak.
