Note: Beef Shoulder Top Blade (Flat Iron) Steaks come from the second most tender beef muscle. They are cut from the Top Blade Roast, which is separated into two pieces by cutting horizontally through the middle to remove the thick connective tissue. Each half resembles a small flank steak. These pieces are then cut crosswise into 2 to 3 individual steaks. They average 7 ounces.
