Fancy a Flat Iron Steak?

It’s delicious. It’s different. And it’s increasing in popularity.

It’s the rich, hearty Flat Iron Steak!

Sometimes called the Top Blade Steak, this steak is cut from the shoulder and has a ton of marbling (read:  flavor!)

Wanna try this cut? Make this Flat Iron with KC Barbecue Glaze recipe and eat your heart out!

And lemme know what you think!

Steak Life: Marbling

Ohhhh. I’m going to spend this weekend marveling at marbling.

That beautiful, snaky, flavor-filled goodness that makes a good steak — great.

Plus, I’m going to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country as well.

What do the two have in common?

Nothing, really. Except that folks have been putting the two together for years now. And it seems to work.

Maybe I have the luxury of spending time oogling a great steak over a long weekend because of those who fought for me — and continue to fight for me.

Thanks, men and women of our armed forces. I’ll raise a glass to you this weekend. And I’ll sprinkle that steak with the extra sweet taste of freedom.

My favorite.
