The second most tender cut after the tenderloin but at half the price! Additionally, it's got more flavour! Usually flavour is a trade off for tenderness because the more work a muscle does, the more flavourful it is but the tougher is and vice versa. The flat iron is a special case since it comes from a part of the cow that does a lot of work but that particular muscle does not, so it gets the flavour benefit of the additional blood flow of the hard working area but it remains very tender.
Two 1/2 pound steaks per package.
