Brazil Flat Iron Steak

This steak has only been sold since 2000; I know my dad, the butcher, never brought one home. It sits between the chuck and the brisket, so it does little work. This is one of the most tender cuts just behind the tenderloin and the chuck eye. This is a hot and fast cut. That is why I used this steak. The marinade makes the beef beefier, and remember, add salt to your taste. I served it with 3 G mashed potatoes: green onion, goat cheese, and garlic (recipe to come later). I hope you like it.
