  • Flap Steak, Flap Meat...Translation?

    As Mark's Insider stated:
    Few butchers are aware of it, and few stores stock it.
    Last weekend I went to my local farmer's store and spoke with the butcher about this cut of meat. He had no idea what I was talking about. "Maybe you're thinking brisket," he guessed.

    Anyone know the Canadian name of this flap steak cut?

    Hrmmm, our local Whole foods carries it in the display, all the butchers there love it.

    Looking up some descriptions, here is what they say:
    "Flap steak is the portion of meat that extends down from T-bone and porterhouse steaks. Bob.........., says flap steak comes from the belly of the animal."

    "It comes from a bottom sirloin butt cut of beef, and is generally a very thin steak.
    The flap steak is sometimes confused with hanger steak as they both are thin and come from similar parts of the cow."


    Maybe you can describe it and they will identify it. OR, hopefully not, maybe they process it differently, like into a grind.....hopefully not.

    It looks a lot like flank steak, but almost a more loose connection (if that makes sense).

    Delish if you find it. We marinade overnight (emerils flank steak marinade is great), and then high heat grill it to rare/medium rare, rest for 10 mins, slice, and it is SOOOO good.

        Where did you see this article? I saw this article pop up on the web site one morning and then it was quickly taken down. Been wondering where to find it since.

        I checked my emails from MDA and the last "Insider" I got was back in April.

            Is flap steak the same as skirt steak? I kind of think it is.
