    Flap Steak

    I was at Costco the other day lamenting the rising beef prices and came across something called Flap Steak, at $7.19/lb. Had never heard of it before, so I Googled it while I was there and found it described as the new popular bistro steak, which had previously been a butcher's cut. It was likened to skirt or flank steak, so I grabbed one.

    When I unwrapped it at home, I was surprised to find that it was already cut in strips about 4-6" long across the grain. It was thicker in some parts than I expected, but I followed the suggestions I found and marinated it for an hour or so (oilve oil, dijon mustard, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder) and then put it on a very hot grill. Probably took 5-7 minutes per side & a 10 minute rest. Due to the thickness of some pieces, I ended up with some unevenly cooked strips, but from the rare to the medium it was mighty tasty.

    the rarest of pieces

    (have to figure out why my photos get turned sideways)

    That's good looking flap steak. You must have had a pretty big crowd to feed.

    The pics turn sideways because the image is taller than it is wide. For some reason vB rotates images when they are like that. What I do to get around this is I edit the photo in paint to make it more square. Works every time.

      Thanks. This was about 3 lbs IIRC. Since I'm doing Atkins, I eat A LOT of meat (OT I'm diabetic and in less than 3 weeks, my blood sugar has gone from terrible to usually being in normal range). But more than half of it is ready for leftovers - probably in a steak salad.

      As for the photos, that's good to know. If I keep taking them with my iPhone I can just take them as square photos from the outset. I do need to work on my food photography though.
