Smoked Marinated Flap Steak Recipe

Sometimes I am in a rush and pickup the wrong cut of meat. I thought I was getting flank steak, turned out it was flap meat. Definitely a good mistake to make. Flap meat is very tender and seems like a mixture between skirt steak and filet. It isn’t that popular, but if you find it, pick it up and try out this Smoked Marinated Flap Steak Recipe.  If you don’t have a smoker, no worries!  Just grill it like you would a skirt steak.

What is Flap Meat/Steak? This article from SF Gate is a comprehensive guide to this delicious cut of beef: SF Gate Article.

Pictures? I can’t believe it. I forgot to take a picture of the meat after it came off the smoker. I had two large cuts of meat, about 4 lbs each, and by the time I finished cutting the second one, there was only a small pile of meat left. Everyone couldn’t wait for it to get served, so they just came and grabbed it off the board while I was cutting it! Definitely a winner.

      It was about 210-225 would be my guess. It was amazing. Loved the Flap Steak cut as well. I almost cut off some fingers of people trying to get at it while I was cutting it.
