Fast, easy, imparts good flavor and doesn’t overpower the flavor of the steak. What more can you ask for? Perfect.

Good basic seasoning. I prefer Lawry's Season Salt, but if you don't have that on hand this will do. Flat Iron steak is one of our family's favorite. Don't overcook, make sure the steaks are cooked medium and cut them against the grain in thin slices. Delish! (no worries, if you don't have time to marinate, just season and grill)
