Teriyaki Flank Steak
Flank Steak or Flatiron?
Flank steak used to be a cut commonly found in the supermarket, and it was considered one of the "cheap" cuts. With the explosion of Tex-Mex places serving Fajitas, this cut of meat is now rarely found in the market, at least in my part of the country. This steak can be made with a cheaper alternative that many supermarkets call a flatiron steak. In the UK, it may be known as Butler's steak or oyster blade steak in Australia.
One trait of these steaks is a lot of marbling which makes for good flavor, and they are cut with the grain which makes them tender.

This recipe is one of my wife's favorite ways to enjoy sweet potatoes. I hope if you give it a try you find it just as enjoyable.
When I want good chili and I don't want to head to the restaurant for it, I make this at home. It really hits the spot on cold days.
Enjoy restaurant-quality steak at home using a cast-iron skillet.
