Man I haven't had a super good steak in a long time but today my wife on her way home went to Whole Foods and checked out their meat and she found some flat irons.....I said "get them" so she got about 3 pounds of them. Cut them up into little individual steaks and let me tell you....These steaks were the most tender steaks I've ever eaten. I've always been a huge fan of Whole Foods but obviously can't afford their meat all the time. I'm always one to pay more for meat if it's worth it and like I said these steaks were like butter....I noticed how tender they were when I was cutting into them.

Nothing fancy with the seasoning just good ol' Sea Salt and cracked fresh black pepper

Honestly, I could've just kept eating them because they honestly were like crack, butter everything that is good in the world!

Oh yeah for sides, I sautéed some mushrooms, onions and made some quartered potatoes, green beans and mushrooms in a thyme/olive oil. They were delicious too...Oh yeah and Whole Foods had some fresh pretzel bread which I just adore! Okay I'm done rambling!

Looks great Eddie. One of my favorite steaks. From the looks I can tell why you could have kept eating them.

I just droooled all over my keyboard.

Why did you decide to cut them prior to grilling them?

Great question.....My initial intent was to cook them to the individual doneness liking (i had 6 people) but after quizzing them they all wanted them like a medium rare plus.....Next time no questions to the diners :)
