Beef, It’s What’s for Dinner: Flat Iron Steaks with Grilled Corn and Cumin-Lime Butter

Flat Iron SteakThanks to our very own Dr. Dwayne Johnson, flat iron steaks have taken off as a popular dish.  It’s great for grilling, kabobs, and many other recipes.  We’ve tried it several different ways and it’s always fantastic.

But, I’ve always been curious as to how it got its unique name.  According to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association,

The “flat iron” nickname was coined many years ago because the original Shoulder Top Blade Steak, which is typically rectangular at one end and arrow-like at the other, loosely resembles the shape of an “old-style” flat iron.

Today, the “flat iron” name is used only in reference to the new Shoulder Top Blade Steak (Flat Iron).  This steak results from an innovative cutting method that removes the tough internal connective tissue of the top blade muscle.

This new recipe offered by Beef, It’s What’s for Dinner looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it.
