  • Flank Steak Questions

    I found a good price for grass fed flank steak but I have to buy a lot of it to get the price.

    Does it work well in a lot of recipes? Do you use it often? Anything I should know about it (too lean, too fatty, etc.)?

    Thanx in advance for any tips and info!

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    We think it's awesome at our house. We always slow-cook it, and with different marinades it's a completely different meal each time.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

      I like it... but not so much as skirt.
      Its lean, but in a good beefy way.

      I NEVER slow cook it. I prefer it marinated then grilled fast and hot to the rare side. Anything in the medium to rare range would be fine IMO. As it's a lean cut I wouldn't ever want it cooked any more than that. And I don't consider it "roast" (as in long braise) worthy because of it's lack of connective tissue. Other lean roasts that I do, such as large round roasts, I also cook med-rare.

      Be sure to slice it across the grain... the fibers are long and thick/stringy on this cut. If you don't cut across the grain you find it awful to chew. But it's great if sliced properly just like skirt.

      And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

        Cool! You both told me just what I need to know. Thank you.
