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?

How to Make Your Own Bacon

A very good friend of ours once quipped, “Hey honey, let’s have the Chateaubriand and lobster for dinner tonight, and save the bacon for a special occasion.”

Sound absurd? Not so much for die-hard bacon lovers.

The very mention of the word bacon in public is bound to attract attention and start necks craning among those within earshot. To say that we are crazy for all things bacon is a crazy understatement. From delectable to disgusting, the uses of bacon among zealots and zanies alike know no bounds.

But for the serious food adventurer, homemade bacon is the end of the journey that begins with fresh pork belly.
