Flat steaks - flank, flat iron, flap, hanger?
Do you have a favorite among these flat cuts for a simple seared steak - limited bells and whistles? I've just been introduced to them recently and love them, possibly even more than a juicy ribeye on most nights. It's hard for me to pick a favorite, but for a simple steak, I think flap and hanger are my favorites.
