It wasn't long ago that this was a cut that truly earned the "Butcher's Reserve" name...a cut that was delicious, but only known to seasoned butchers. Instead of grinding it into ground beef or trying to explain what it was to customers, they would simply take it home. These days, it's much more popular, and for good reason. 


This is our Grain Finished American Wagyu variety, the latest of which has outstanding marbling. We visually estimate it to rank as a BMS 9 on the Japanese marbling scale (based on Ribeyes), which is beyond what the USDA scale even measures. This is far beyond the Prime marbling that you will find at even the most premium steakhouses, where you would be paying upwards of $120 for a comparable Ribeye steak. Less than 1% of the beef raised in the US has this level of marbling.


The Flat Iron is considered the second most tender cut on the cow, right behind the filet (tenderloin). It's larger size and extremely generous marbling, as well as lower price point, help it give the filet, and any other high end steak, a run for their money in quality. Plus, it has a cool name. 


Our Flat Irons are dry aged for a minimum of two weeks, packaged one per pack, then flash frozen and vacuum sealed to preserve freshness. Our American Wagyu Flat Irons are sliced to 1" thick to match the Japanese style of thinner cuts and shorter cooking times.
