6 steaks


  • 3 pounds flat iron steak

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground mixed peppercorns

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. Brush steak with olive oil, then press into ground peppercorns and season with salt; set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add flat iron, and cook to desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.

  2. Once the steak has finished cooking, remove to a plate and keep warm. Stir the minced garlic into the skillet, and cook over medium heat until the garlic begins to brown around the edges, about 1 minute. Pour in the balsamic vinegar, increase heat to medium-high, and simmer until the vinegar has reduced by half.

  3. Thinly slice the flat iron steak across the grain, and arrange on a serving platter. Pour the reduced balsamic overtop, and sprinkle with chopped parsley to serve.
