Beef Flat Iron Steak


Flat iron steak is a modern cut, which butchers trim from the the featherblade (or spale bone) shoulder of beef. This makes it good value. The resulting flat iron steak is easy to cook and great to marinate. This produces a flavourful portion of meat, though it is slightly tougher than other cuts. You can cook flat iron quickly or slowly, depending on the recipe.

We source local meat from farms in Wiltshire, Somerset and the South West, and make sure that we get the absolute best and most sustainable breeds for the season. Our free range cows feed on grass and lead happy lives in the great British countryside. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.

Here’s a cooking instruction for a Flat Iron Steak:

1. Start by preheating your grill or a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. It’s important to get the cooking surface hot to achieve a nice sear on the steak.
2. While the grill or skillet is heating up, season your Flat Iron Steak with salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings of your choice. Let the steak sit at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes to allow the seasoning to penetrate the meat.
3. Once the grill or skillet is hot, place the seasoned Flat Iron Steak on the cooking surface. Cook the steak for about 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness. Adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness. For medium, cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, and for medium-well, cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side.
4. While cooking, avoid pressing down on the steak with a spatula, as it can release the juices and make the meat dry.
5. After cooking, remove the Flat Iron Steak from the grill or skillet and let it rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more flavorful and tender steak.
6. Once the steak has rested, slice it against the grain into thin strips. This helps to maximize tenderness.
7. Serve your delicious Flat Iron Steak with your favorite side dishes and enjoy!

Remember, cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the steak and the heat of your grill or skillet. It’s always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure the steak reaches your desired internal temperature: 130°F (54°C) for medium-rare, 140°F (60°C) for medium, or 150°F (66°C) for medium-well.
