Flat iron steak has a strong beef flavor but is surprisingly tender. Broiling is my preferred method over pan-frying or grilling.


  • 2 lb. flat iron steak
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt or 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika


  1. Preheat the broiler to high (500°F). Place a rack 6 inches below the heating element in the oven (not directly below). To make cleanup easier, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place the steak on a cutting board after removing it from its packaging. Using paper towels, blot it dry.
  3. Season the steak on both sides with kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
  4. Place the steak on the baking sheet that has been prepared. Broil it for 6 minutes on the first side.
  5. Turn the steak carefully to the other side. Broil for 6 minutes more, or until the meat is medium-rare.
  6. Place the cooked steak on a cutting board. Allow it to rest for five minutes, loosely covered with foil, before slicing thinly. Then serve.


Flat iron steak is tender enough that it doesn’t need to be marinated before cooking. However, marinating it will undoubtedly tenderize it.
