Flat Irons are an awesome cut. They are versatile and can pack a serious punch of beefy flavor. Like most cuts, our Fullblood Wagyu Flat Iron Steaks are much more marbled than their conventional counterparts. But they still benefit from some nice acid to bring out the tenderness. This balsamic marinade recipe is simple and oh-so good.
