Actually I plan to roast a chicken for dinner tomorrow, but thought that the flat iron steak discussion should be pulled out of that thread. Here's one I picked up today at the local Kroger affiliate, packed by Tyson according to the label. Will try the low and slow approach on this one:
It was the smallest one in the bin, at about a pound. But wow, 7 bucks a pound for chuck? I guess flat iron is following in the footsteps of other less desirable cuts that suffer from bursts of popularity. It wasn't long ago a packer cut brisket could be had for about $1.50 a pound, last I looked it was about $4. Sheesh. Flank steak, tri tip, chicken wings - sigh.
