It’s easy to get wrapped up in the excitement of grilling! Especially when you’re preparing large cuts of meat, like brisket or a roast. You get so caught up in the process that you may throw the meat on the grill and not realize until after it’s started cooking that you haven’t quite planned how you are going to flip the meat or get it off the grill. This is why grilling gloves are a must-have in any grill master’s tool kit.

Cut of the Month: Flat Iron Steak

The Lobel family of Lobel’s Prime Meats in Manhattan and Lobel’s of New York online butcher shop are fourth- and fifth-generation butchers. With our Cut of the Month series, we will bring you their wealth of knowledge and expertise on specific cuts of meat, including their unique characteristics, preparation methods, and how to select the best cut.

It’s not every day that a new steak comes along. There are, after all, only so many muscles in a cow. However, if you check the encyclopedic MEAT by the Lobels, which was published in 1971, you’ll find no mention of flat iron steak.

Fast-forward to the publication of Lobel’s Meat Bible in 2009 and you’ll find the flat iron right there on page 21. Plus, there’s a delicious recipe for Flat Iron Steaks with Roasted Red Pepper Butter on page 38.

So, where did this steak come from?
