This post discusses my favorite INEXPENSIVE steak, introducing the…
“FLAT IRON STEAK“!!!
As you can see from the picture to the right… I purchased these for $4.05 per lb. I bought 4 packages… all about a pound each. A pound of very good steak … for less than a double whopper value meal with cheese… nice! :)
Woo hoo! :)
Let’s get right down to business… shall WE?
1) Cooking bacon. I recommend cooking this steak and Asparagus in bacon grease or butter. I wanted to cook with bacon … so I started the process in a large skillet.
2) Cooking Asparagus … tossed Asparagus on top of the bacon. Hmmm good!!! :) I removed the bacon for use in cooking the steaks. As you can see in the bottom of the picture… I had plenty of ‘bacon juice’ in the skillet. :)
Total cook time for the Asparagus was approximately 20 minutes.
3) Cooking the Steaks – if you look closely, around the edges of the skillet… you can see bacon! :)
This was the same bacon that I used in cooking the Asapagus.
The Flat Iron Steaks are thinner than typical steaks I cook. My typical cook time is 10 minutes total for Ribeyes and Strips etc… 7 minutes was plenty for these.
4) Place on the PLATE and EAT!!!
Like many things… I owe this TOO to Mark Sisson and MarksDailyApple.com, I had never had Flat Iron Steak until I read about it in this post…”How to Cook the Perfect Steak” and began to seek it out. Like ALMOST everything Mark posts… I agree wholeheartedly with what he wrote.
