Those of you who have been with us a while will fondly remember last January’s Wagyu Monday as the day Flat Iron decided to source some 100% grass fed, pedigree Wagyu Picanha from New Zealand, and then give it away. Well, we’re going to do it again.
We’re calling it Chuck Tuesday, largely because we’ll be serving free Chuck Steak and it’s next Tuesday.
@flatironsteak followers will know we’ve been really getting into our whole animal butchery and generally enjoy tinkering around with knives and sides of beef more than most. The upshot of this kind of pastime is that we get to try lots of cuts of beef that don’t normally make it to your plates. We believe the Chuck Eye and Chuck Centre warrant your attention.
WTF is Chuck?
A hugely underrated group of cuts, where butchers go to find the most marbled meat on the beast. Hugely flavoursome and juicy, in the right hands it’s pretty special stuff. It frankly deserves some celebration, along with a bit more respect than it usually gets. The chuck contains a number of great cuts (including the Flat Iron), but this Tuesday we’ll be serving two of the best: Chuck Eye and Chuck Centre. Great cuts from great beef- specifically Queensland barley fed Angus and Angus Wagyu cross. Marbletastic.
These are fantastic steak cuts which are often turned into stew. That’s the kind of thing that upsets us, and we’d like you to taste why they deserve better.
We’ll only be serving these cuts medium rare and as with Wagyu Monday you pay for drinks and sides, which we reckon is fair enough. Of course when it’s gone, it’s gone.
So in summary
In celebration of an underrated cut:
When: Tuesday 13th August from 5.30pm
Where: Flat Iron, 17 Beak St
What: Free Chuck Steak, only pay for any drinks / sides you would like
Why: To spread the good news of Chuck Steak to London’s beef lovers
Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
