I have had some good grilled flat iron steaks in restaurants but never noticed this cut in the grocery store. One day my friend Sharon saw one and tried it. She told me it was great so I dashed over to the store to find one.
I marinated it overnight and then we grilled it. This is one tasty cut of meat.
GRILLED FLAT IRON STEAK
1 Flat Iron Steak
4 large shallots, finely chopped
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
Season the steak with a generous sprinkling of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Place the steak in a resealable plastic bag. Combine the shallots, vinegar, sugar and soy sauce in a mixing bowl. Pour the marinade into the bag and toss everything around to coat the steak evenly.
Marinate the steak for at least 2 hours but overnight is better.
Grill the steak 5-7 minutes for medium rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice at a 45 degree angle, across the grain, into thin slices and serve.
Beef heaven...where I want to end up.
