I am always looking for better products, and of course great value, who isn't these day's......Well I am here to tell you with the help of one of my cooking mags. I found a very inexpensive cut of meat that is second only to a filet mingon (seriously)......Flat Iron steak!! Now I have always avoided it because of the huge connective tissue running through the middle (which says to me long braising is the only thing going to make this piece of meat taste good, which is not a bad thing.) but not always what you have time for.
Anyway, butchers have come up with a way to cut this mussel across the top and leave the connective tissue out altogether...mind you this is being done for high end restaurants, you won't find it cut this way in your giant supermarket....but if any one has a butcher in their area that butchers their own meats you could ask.
I went to my large chain grocery and asked the meat counter for a package with the least connective tissue he could find, he kindly obliged me and to my delight I had the most tender flavorful taco's for my lunch and it took all of about 5 min to prepare.
At $2.99 a pound you cannot beat it, and if your like me, and have had to learn how to just cook for yourself and not a family anymore than quick, healthful, great tasting, and not allot of cleanup is what I'm looking for.
