The first and logical question comes to your mind when you hear about the flat iron steak: "what is it?" Well, it's a shoulder part from the beef meat. How to make a flat iron steak? Usually, butchers remove the connective tissue to separate the top shoulder blade into two cuts. These are the entire blade and the flat iron. Flat iron steak is well-marbled and is less pricey than other steaks. That's the reason which makes it a popular choice among home cooks. When cooked correctly, flat iron steak is wonderfully tender and juicy. Exceptionally well, it pairs with steamed asparagus.

Steak is ideal for people looking to lower their carb intake and increase protein in their diet. Flat iron steak has zero carbs but 20 grams of protein in a 100-gram serving. Besides, did you know that you should get daily by multiplying your pounds by 0.36? For example, an average 150-pound person would need about 54 grams daily. But more active people might need more. Still, a small serving of flat iron steak provides about ⅓ of that.
