"With flat iron steak you have all the tenderness of filet, but you must provide the flavor with marinades or rubs."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

4 (6 ounce)
flat iron steaks
ground black pepper
dark brown sugar
fresh lime juice
This is the same recipe I use minus the lime juice. Must be that 71759 doesn't know how to cook a flat iron steak. Never had one that was tough. The trick to cooking flat iron steaks is low heat and turn often.
The rub was okay, But the first reveiwer as never had a real "flat iron" steak. I have never had a tough one... Ask your butcher for a true flat iron, and you will not be let down. These are one of the most tender steaks I've ever eaten....
Wow! My hubby took one bite into this steak and went berzerk -- he declared it the BEST fajita meat he'd ever eated. It was *that* good. The only variation I made to the recipe was to decrease the brown sugar by half. Other than that, the only thing I did differently was to "grill" it in the oven @ 400 for about 20 minutes on a panini grill, rather than cooking it outside. Although this recipe is not designated a "fajita" recipe, we found the flatiron steak with this marinade worked perfectly for that. Thanks for this -- we highly recommend it!
Flat Iron Steak is cut from the shoulder of a steer and is the second most tender cut after the tenderloin. It is often described as having both the tenderness of a ribeye or strip steak while still having the full-flavored character of a sirloin or skirt steak. It has a large band of connective tissue running down the center that must be removed - hopefully by your butcher. Searing steak on the grill or stovetop (in the right size pan) and finishing in the oven is a very common method of preparation. Finishing the steak in the oven prevented the wonderful crust on the steak from burning on the grill. Excellent recipe, this is a keeper.
We've used this recipe numerous times. It makes a delicious flat iron steak! The only change we make is in the cooking method. We still sear the steak on each side. But instead of moving it to the oven, we turn down the heat on the grill to about medium and cook for an additional 4-6 minutes on each side.
This is a really good seasoning for this steak. First time we have ever tried flat iron steak and I have to say, if you can't have ribeye, this is pretty darn good! It was tender and the seasoning gave it a really good taste. I could not grill on the grill, so I just cooked in the oven slowly. Very good!!
Very nice flavor .... but grills vary in temperature so, for me, this timing resulted in rare beef. Next time I will cook it on the grill 4 to 5 minutes per side then into the 400 oven for 10 minutes. the Flat Iron beef is really a great choice and is quite tender but must be seared to seal in the flavors and should be served at least medium rare.
Very tender with great flavor!
