You can also refer to this handy reference chart from the folks at Certified Angus Beef®.
Now that our weather is perfect for dining al fresco, it’s also the time to get the grill fired up. It’s also the perfect opportunity to try some beef cuts you’ve never tasted before.
Flat iron: This well-marbled steak is cut from the shoulder and it’s tenderness rivals a filet mignon. No kidding! Great marinated or simply seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat; about 4 minutes per side. Do not cover the grill. Let rest for 5 minutes, and then slice thinly, across the grain. Best cooked medium-rare.
Hanger Steak: Marinade, high heat, and quick cooking make this a great steak for throwing on the grill. Hanger steak gets its name from the fact it hangs down between the tenderloin and the rib. It is aromatic and has a beefy flavour but the coarse texture and long muscle fibers can make the meat shrink and dry out quickly if not cooked properly. So remember, wet, hot and fast is the way to cook this flavourful cut. Best cooked to medium-rare. Slice thinly, and across the grain for a more tender, satisfying chew.
