Smoked paprika and chipotle pepper give this version of blackened steak a spicy, Southwestern flair. To cool things off, add a salad of leafy greens with fruit and cheeses. —Denise Pounds, Hutchinson, Kansas

The trick to Flat Iron Steak is to cut thin & definitely cut ACROSS the grain. Then it melts in your mouth.

Delicious & Easy! I have given this recipe to several friends, and they loved it as much we did. I noticed someone posted that it was not tender...I cut the slices thin and have never had a touch bite yet.

I cannot imagine how anyone can use the word 'tender' to describe this!!

A description that is more suitable is

'Fine Corinthian LEATHER'!!

Or 'Three Bubble Gum Balls'!

Great flavor, tender & juicy. Would definitely make again. Minted Cucumber Salad is a great side choice - flavors compliment each other perfectly!
