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.
