Farmer Bryan actually wanted to personally describe this cut for the website. "This is the worse steak ever, you have probably never heard of it because no one talks about it. It taste like garbage. Do not Order"
In all seriousness this is probably one of the most overlooked, tastiest steaks on the animal. In fact - only two steaks come from each Cow. Yes, you read that right, two. It's Bryan's favorite cut so you can see why he tries to downplay it, and we can't blame him. The Hanger Steak comes individually packed in a 10oz. cut.
This is a high and fast cook. Season the outside with salt and pepper and pre-heat some oil in a pan until it’s nice and hot. This cut takes minutes to cook and should be kept rare to medium rare. After resting, slice and sprinkle with some flake or finishing salt.
The Hanger Steak is from a muscle used to support the diaphragm of the beef. It doesn't do a ton of work, so it is extremely tender and delicious. The exact location of it is actually in between the plate and the flank.
