Understanding the Top Blade or Flat Iron Steak Cut

Definition: Probably one of the must under appreciated steaks, the Top Blade Steak may be more commonly called the "Flat Iron Steak". This tender and flavorful little steak is cut from the top blade roast and comes from the chuck primal. This is one of my favorite cuts for making sandwiches.

Perfect for the grill (or broiling) this steak has such a great flavor that it requires no real seasoning. Tender enough to cook through medium without a marinade (though I would if I were forced to cook this to medium well or well).

This is a perfect steak on its own, but also in a wide range of beef dishes. I ​makes great tacos.
