It lloks like flank steak but its not as flat and is a little more round in shape. I think if you marinate it for 6 to 8 hours it is some of the best meat to marinate. Here check this out about flat iron steak.

The Flat Iron Steak - Is it really the best cut of Beef?
When the starter worked, it was awesome. Throw the coals over top the line, turn the gas on, ignite gas, let it run for 5 minutes, shut the gas off and after a while, gray coals to work with. I need to stop being lazy, take it apart and figure out what it's not working.

I'll have to check that out. I usually grab my flank steaks at Costco, and marinate with all kinds of things. My fave lately has been Newman's Own Mesquite with Lime marinade, but sometimes just some salt and pepper does the trick.

Man it was so funny when 12th asked Hess out.

My fiancee has gotten to the point where a few times a week she'll ask me what's going on on The Warpath. I try not to talk it up though. She's a Skins fan, and if she joined this forum I would feel like George Costanza when Susan and Elaine started hanging out and his world's collided. A George divided CANNOT STAND!

LOL! That is so true. I have my worlds, I hate when I meet work people outside of work, like at Target or something. The small talk and intro's are just plain horrible.

You sound like my old college roommate, he was always like "yeah I got girls got a date tonight btw". Then we caught him that same night just chilling in the Wal Mart parking lot, actually kind of felt bad for the guy.

Born and raised in Philly...I like Delessandro's but Steve's Prince of Steaks is by far the best.

Re: Best Friday Night Dinner

Flat iron steak is one of my favorite cuts because it's usually cheap and always tasty. It takes marinades REALLY well. Try half red wine vinegar and half soy sauce and let it sit as long as you want. The vinegar breaks the meat down where it's super tender and it's AWESOME off the grill.

Re: Best Friday Night Dinner

so i asked my butcher buddy from cross street market about the flat iron steaks. he said they used to be a great steak at a great price but it is now the trendy meat and the prices have risen from a few bucks a pound to 7-9 bucks. so he doesnt carry them anymore as he says you can just buy a ny strip or any other quality steak at 7-9 bucks a pound.

he said the same thing happened with flank and skirt steaks. they used to be a great piece of meat at a great price, but since they became trendy a few years ago, the price is just too high.

idk, im kinda bummed. FD or anyone whose bought them, how much do you pay a pound for flat iron steak? my guy didnt have it and gave me a history and reasons why he didtn have it instead of just qouting me a price or the avg market value.

ps - i probably said this before but sometimes we wake up on a sat or sun and head up to philly just to hang out, eat and drink. pats n genos are alright.

i like mcgerks in federal hill in baltimore. its a philly bar, owned by philly natives and they import the steak and buns from philly.

Food Lion is definitely the spot for them. They sometimes will run a special and my wife and I stock up when we can get them for around 4-5 bucks a piece.

i have been using a soy sauce base for the steaks i take to tailgate at fed ex. i use soy sauce, peanut oil, tomato juice, brown sugar, and some garlic. i usually use flank but sometime flat iron depends on which is cheaper either way they come out great, flank and flat iron are some of my favorite cuts as well

Re: Best Friday Night Dinner

Yeah, it's a nice cut if you have the time to marinade it especially. Like I said before (maybe even earlier in this thread) half soy, half red wine vinegar for as long as you can let it marinade... it'll be the most tender steak you've ever had. SUPER cheap, easy marinade too.
