Michael Weisshaupt, Sterling Silver Signature Chef

“I work with a lot of flat iron because of great flavor, tenderness and a good center of the plate cost.”

Until 2002, top blade had always been a less desirable cut. But by removing the gristle, blade steaks and flat iron steaks have now become steakhouse (and restaurant) darlings. Top blade can also be used for stir-fry, sandwich slices and Mexican favorites.
