Hanger steak is a cut of beef steak prized for it's rich flavor. This cut comes from the inside of the diaphragm of the beef animal, generally weighing in around 6 oz. Sometimes, the hanger steak has pockets of fat or membrane going through the middle of the steak.
The hanger steak is not the most tender stand-alone cut, but this doesn’t mean you should miss out on the unbelievable flavor. It is perfect for marinating, and is wonderful to broil or grill. Best served rare / medium-rare. This cut of beef is great if you love artisan cuts and want to try cooking with a new kind of steak. In terms of flavor and texture, it is comparable to flank steak.
Our meat is from 100% grass-fed cattle, and we don't use hormones or steroids.
Did you know...the hanger steak is so flavorful, that it was previously known as "butcher's steak", because butchers would often prefer to keep it for themselves rather than sell it. When slaughtering our own animals on the farm we've often eaten this steak the same day the animal is slaughtered!
