Just wow. Our personal favorite. Another totally underrated cut of steak. The flap meat steak. Comes right from the bottom sirloin and is very coarse grained and therefore full of flavor and juiciness. It is very similar to the hanger and the skirt steak.
For the Morgan Ranch flap meat steak a marinade isn’t required. This flap meat steak has plenty of rich, beefy flavor on its own. Just a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground pepper while cooking is enough.
The Morgans control all stages of production themselves: rearing, calving, selection and classification, feeding, transport, supervision of harvesting and meat production, packaging, shipping and export to Japan. This way the Morgans make sure that their meat is always of the highest quality. Before export, the beef matures for 30 days and is then flash frozen to protect the aroma.

Instructions & Cooking Tips
Completely defrost this beauty in the fridge. Shortly before cooking open the pack and place on the countertop and let it breathe for a couple of minutes.
For the Morgan Ranch flap meat steak we recommend the cast-iron skillet, or the classic fry-pan. The grill works great as well but due to the small size of this steak you have to make sure not to overcook it.
If cooking in the fry-pan or the iron skillet we highly recommend good quality butter (no added salt and preservatives.)
The reverse sear method and medium-rare doneness yields best results for all Morgan Ranch steaks: slow cook and turn often. Let it sizzle. Then
once the core temperature has reached 52 degrees Celcius or 125 degrees Fahrenheit sear on high heat for a couple of seconds until outer layer is crispy and dark brown and the internal temperature has reached 130 degrees Fahrenheit or 55 degrees Celsius.
Remember, the steak will continue to cook as it rests. The internal temperature will rise by a few degrees even after it has been taken off the heat.
The flap steak is good as it is and is also a great steak for dishes that call for thinly sliced meat to complement fresh garden vegetables, herbs, and salads.
Eat while still warm for soft and buttery flavor and experience.
