Flap steak at Asian market

Nyleve | Mar 29, 2014 07:44 AM

So I never see this cut of beef anywhere. The other day I was at First Choice Supermarket (Kennedy and 407) and there it was in the meat counter. Cheap, too - like $4.49 lb. I bought two pieces, froze one and marinated the other for dinner last night. Turned out to be absolutely unchewable. Grilled to medium and thinly sliced across the grain, the meat was almost inedible. I often do flank steak that way and it's delicious, but this cut was ridiculous. Not sure if it was specifically the meat at this store but i won't be buying it again. This wouldn't have even be useable in a stir fry. I'll grind up the other steak for burgers. My dog was delighted with the leftovers, though.
