    Flat Iron Steak

    My beautiful bride and I had a quick overnight (grandparents in town) to Napa this weekend. At the Oxbow market, Five Dot Ranch has a butcher shop. I’ve heard how great flat iron steak is so I picked one up to try! Any tips outside of the usual “hot and fast” technique for a cut like this? I’m using Carne Crosta rub with a touch of olive oil.

    I was just going to post the same question. I'm still new at navigating this site and had a hard time finding anything specific to flat iron steak

      I love FIS. Hot and Fast is the only way I do it. Rub it up and sear on my flat top. So yummy.

        Hot and fast. Great versatile steak.

          We had a couple of really nice flatirons last week, cooked hot and fast, but first marinated a couple of hours in a version of this:

          1/3 cup soy sauce
          1/2 cup olive oil
          1/3 cup lemon juice
          1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
          1 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
          3 Tbsp dried basil
          1 1/2 Tbsp dried parsley flakes
          1 tsp ground white pepper
          1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
          1 tsp minced garlic

            Dry brine 4 hours and then season 15 minutes before putting on the grill with Amazing Ribs BBBR. Baste with butter. But that's just me

              Here is a post I previously did in Oct. 2020... loved it...

              Sous Vide Ooni (SVO) flat iron steak again marinated in McCormick's garlic peppercorn. This is one of my go to now for a quick and easy meal.

                Second sous vide. It's one of the few cuts I'll cook that way and then sear.

                Sous vide is great if I'm pulling an item from the freezer. This was already defrosted so I went ahead and cooked it "traditionally". A little bit more fun and keeps up the variety of cooking for me. I do have a frozen flank steak that may get a little SVQ treatment here pretty soon!

                The chimi would definitely have made it even better. I actually got some small batch olive oil I want to try for a chimi soon!

              jfmorris The only reason I have a gasser is due to laziness! Plus standing outside in the cold and/or wind isn't very appealing for longer than you have to.

                Great work man! I was gonna say....flip that baby continuously until she is at the internal temp you want. The flat iron is perfect for that. Looks like you nailed it though.

                  Yes, and the Carne Crosta worked its wonderful magic. It actually was one of the better tasting steaks I’ve made in a while. I’m only bummed I really never come by flat iron. All the flavor of flank steak but much more tender!

                  Carne Crosta rub is a secret weapon for steak searing, for sure, JakeT . No burnt taste, just a delicous, flavorful char. I got hooked on it a while back, thanks to recommendations here on The Pit.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
