A fashionable steak, having been showcased in recent years by top restaurants, but long a staple of weekly shops at the butchers. The key to its new found popularity is its outstanding flavour, especially when cooked fast and rare, before being thinly sliced. Boasting outstanding value, the Flat Iron is a great introduction to how good our beef steaks are.
Shelf life: minimum 3 days.
The match for any prime steak in flavour, this forgotten favourite is traditionally used in stews and casseroles to develop unctuous and melting qualities. For a quick and luxurious dish however, cook your Flat Irons fast and rare in the pan, before thinly slicing, and serving with gratin dauphinoise. A favourite of chefs for its dependable and consistent qualities.
About the cut
Also known as Butler's Steak, Oyster Blade Steak, Top Blade Steak, and the Feather Steak, the Flat Iron is a favourite the world over, known as an easy to cook affordable steak with plenty of flavour. Taken from the shoulder, it's cut with the grain to produce a less than tender steak, but with outstanding taste. Out of favour for a long time, the Flat Iron has become very popular in the last five years.
About the breed
we'll choose from our selection of available breeds
It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat from British breeds, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
