The Foodie Review = Week Ending 09/12/20
Kroger's Flat Iron Steak is da bomb! I am in desperate desire to try one of the local actual butcher shops but I'm seriously ballin' on the food budget game so while I have a deep want to become a customer of Willy's Butcher Shop or Hen Hoc in our fair and scruffy city of Knoxville, I'll have to make due for now with Kroger and Aldi my main choices for groceries these days. When I do the weekly menu planning I like to include a very diverse palate of meats for the week and I love to include steak once a week because it's a pure love of mine. I had planned to get a non-seasoned ribeye from Kroger's this week, but then remembered that they MAY have my all time favorite cut that ranks just above the sumptuous ribeye....a FLAT IRON steak!?!? I would go on click list and see if it was an option, and blessed be it was! $12.00 later I was the proud owner of a beautiful steak and couldn't wait to cook it up.
I followed the instructions that Alton Brown gave us in the ribeye episode as discussed in a previous blog post and it fit the bill just fine for this gorgeous piece of meat. I currently rank my steak cuts in this order:
- Flat Iron Steak
- Ribeye Steak
- London Broil
- Filet Mignon
- Flank Steak
