What steak is like flank steak?
Similarly, it is asked, what is flank steak called at the grocery store?
One of the most common names for flank steak is London Broil. You'll sometimes see it written that way in the grocery store or on a menu. However, stores also use top round as “London Broil” so you need to know what it looks like to be sure you're buying the right cut.
is flank steak a good cut of meat? Flank is the leanest of the two. It's a good all-purpose beef cut, suitable for grilling, roasting, broiling, or sautéing. But because it's so lean, it can be dry and tough if overcooked or sliced too thickly—it's important to cook flank to no more than medium and slice it very thinly against the grain.
Beside this, is flank steak similar to sirloin?
The first thing you should know about flank steak is that it is cut from the fourth smallest area of the cow, with the shank, the tenderloin and the top sirloin being smaller. Other than the bigger areas such as the rib, chuck, or round areas, the cuts from the flank are very scarce.
Can you substitute round steak for flank steak?
Both top round and flank steaks are sometimes called London broil steak, so it's no surprise that top round is considered a flank steak alternative. This thick cut comes from the top of the rear leg. As with the other steaks in this category, marinating before broiling or grilling top round steak promotes tenderness.
