Meat knowledge

As you might have guessed, the Flat Iron Steak owes its name to its shape. In fact, it resembles an iron. But please don't use it for cooking. However, this new cut is perfect for grilling and short roasts.

In Austria, the Flat Iron Steak is also known as the classic Schulterscherzl. A special feature of the Flat Iron Steak is the combination of an intense flavour and a high but fine marbling. This means that even high heat does not affect the meat and it remains wonderfully tender and juicy.

Flat iron steak is taken from the blade or blade end, which is just below the shoulder blade. It usually has a tendon running through it, which is removed for this fine steak cut.

However, if the meat is to be roasted or braised, the tendon can be left in. It becomes buttery soft after hours of braising.

Long undiscovered - the flat iron steak

With such an astonishing flavour to the tender steak, why has it remained undiscovered for so long? There is a relatively simple reason for this, namely its location.

The shoulder, with the blade piece, is arguably one of the parts of the animal that moves the most. It is not surprising, then, that cuts of meat from this area have a strong connective tissue or musculature and are therefore used as braising cuts. The fact that such a wonderfully succulent and tender cut can be found here, of all places, has probably surprised many.

Medium rare at approx. 53 °C core temperature

One Flat Iron Steak (approx. 900 g) is enough for approx. 2 - 4 people.

Quality is our top priority and, when it comes to beef, a few factors are crucial. These include the perfect breed of cattle, the age of the animals and optimum feeding, free from concentrated feed.

However, this alone is not enough to meet our requirements. We don't do things by halves when it comes to the quality of our meat products! That's why 100% of our animals come from Austria. The farms are located in the lake district of the Salzkammergut in beautiful Upper Austria.

At Fitmeat, we also only process the finest meat from heifers, also known as calves, and steers. The meat has a wonderful marbling and a delicious flavour. Our classic cattle breeds also include Red-Angus, Black-Angus, Charolais, Limousin, White-Blue Belgian and Wagyu, as well as various crossbreeds.

Our cattle are 4x AT labelled. This means that birth, rearing, slaughter and cutting take place 100% in Austria. The value chain therefore remains entirely in Austria. We distance ourselves from long animal transports and select our partners very carefully. We therefore rely on animals that are kept in a species-appropriate manner, born and raised by small farmers, and on butchers who know both the farmer and the animal personally.

Our butchers allow the cuts to mature on the bone for a long time. This gives us first-class, well-hung meat that does not lose any water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
