A Taste of Tradition

At Chicago Steak Company, we invite you to taste tradition. Since 1865 with the founding of the Union Stock Yards, Chicago has been at the heart of high-quality American meats. Chicago Steak Company proudly carries on that tradition. We specialize in hand-cut, Mid-West raised, Premium Angus USDA Prime beef - cut by Chicago butchers with five generations of experience. If you're looking for the very best steaks on the market, then you've come to the right place.

Prime Flat Iron Steak

Every flat iron we offer is certified USDA Prime or upper-1/3 USDA Choice, putting our steaks in the top 2% of beef worldwide. Each steak is hand-selected and hand carved to ensure you get the best cut possible, and then dry- or wet-aged to intensify its naturally delicious flavor. That is why our flat irons are among the most flavorful, juicy, and tender flat irons you'll ever eat. They're the same amazing flat irons you'll get at 5-star restaurants like Jordan's or Ditka's. In short, the very best steaks your money can buy.

All steaks are USDA inspected...but is your steak GRADED? Chicago Steak Company only sells the very best.

Our Beef Flat Iron Steak is cut across the grain of the muscle, creating gourmet steaks that are meatier tasting, yet still very tender. Our wet-aged USDA Prime Flat Irons cook quickly but bring an indolent flavor of heartiness to the palate.

Cooking Wet Aged Flat Iron Steak

Not in the mood to grill? No problem, a flat iron steak cooks well in a HOT cast iron skillet. Be sure to liberally oil the pan to ensure the steak won’t stick.

Season your steak with our signature steak seasoning and cook to until your desired doneness is reached.We suggest to allow your steak to rest for half the time it was cooked. This allows for the juices to flow back into the center of the steak.

Flat Iron Cooking Tips

1. Plan ahead. Know the cut of steak you are cooking. A steak is more flavorful and tender if not overcooked.2. Preheat your grill or broiler to high. Charcoal coals should be ashen grey and red-hot. When cooking on top of the range, the cast iron skillet or grill pan should be hot, but not smoking.3. Season your steak with salt & pepper or a blended mix to taste.4. Lightly oil your cooking surface.5. Sear the steaks on first side using the times listed on the Steak-Cooking Chart as a guide. Flip when juices begin to bead on the surface.6. Cook your steaks on the second side and use the steak cooking chart below as a guide for time. Less time will be needed on the second side. Steaks may cook quickly, so be attentive.7. Gauge doneness. This may be determined by touch or meat thermometer. A rare steak will feel very soft when touched and will have an internal temperature of 120° - 125°F. Medium rare steak will feel soft and spongy to the touch and register 130° F, medium steaks will offer resistance when touched and register 140° -145° F. Well-done steaks will be firm with an internal temperature of 160° F.8. Rest your steak. Allow steaks to stand for 5 minutes before serving. This lets the juices flow from the center of the meat to the exterior, resulting in a juicy & succulent steak.

Cooking

If your steak is frozen, we recommend thawing it in a pan, thawing in a pan helps catch any drippings that may occur, under refrigeration for 24 hours.

Season with our signature steak seasoning.

When turning your steak, be sure to use tongs and not a fork. A fork will puncture the steak and allow for the juices to escape the steak.

Allow your steak to rest for half of the cooking time. This allows for the juices to flow back into the center of the steak.

Wine

Flat Iron Wine Pairing

The Flat Iron Steak has a bold flavor and is a bit leaner (less marbling) which is important to consider when pairing a wine. We suggest a You’ll need a full-flavored wine with high acidity to break down the fat from the steak to create a mesh of bold flavors in your mouth.

If you prefer white wine, then champagne is your best bet. Champagne has similar acidic and flavor characteristics of red wine, so it can stand up to the boldness of the Flat Iron Steak. If you’d rather have a red wine
