Flat Iron Steak

allesandra's picture
This is an easy flat iron steak recipe that I found on a recipe exchange website. A cut of beef, also known as a Flat Iron roast or shoulder top blade steak, that is taken from the shoulder clod just above the shoulder blade. The Flat Iron has two halves that are separated by a thin section of tough gristle running lengthwise through the meat. Flavorful, well marbled, and very tender, a Flat Iron Steak is considered to be only slightly less tender than a filet mignon cut.

Ingredients
  Flat iron steak 2 Pound
  Olive oil 2 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Chopped fresh parsley 1 Teaspoon
  Chopped fresh rosemary 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Chopped fresh chives 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sauvignon 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Cabernet)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard powder 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

Place the steak inside of a large resealable bag. In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, garlic, parsley, rosemary, chives, Cabernet, salt, pepper and mustard powder. Pour over the steak in the bag. Press out as much air as you can and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the steak in the hot skillet for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or to your desired degree of doneness. Discard the marinade. These steaks taste best at medium rare. Allow them to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
