*  *Beef Flat Iron Steaks are cut from the second most tender beef muscle - the Beef Chuck, Shoulder Clod, Top Blade, Roast (IMPS/NAMP 114D). The Flat Iron Steak is derived from the Top Blade Roast by separating it into two pieces by cutting horizontally through the middle to remove the thick connective tissue. Each half is cut crosswise into 2 to 3 individual steaks.
