Hanger Steak Tonight!
Doing a little Hanger Steak marinated in sour orange and garlic leaning towards the hot sear method. I thought about a reverse sear but I don't know how that will work for hanger. The meat already has such rich flavor. Any thoughts....... opposing view points are welcomed.

Keep on Truckin!

My feeling on hangar steak is that because of how thin and tender it is, you can do a direct heat cook the entire time. It should take only 5 minutes or so to get to med-rare.

It is generally marinated to achieve its tenderness.

CharredApron 03-27-2013 03:34 PM

Actually, it is naturally tender and is very close to the liver internally on the steer. That is where it derives it's natural deep color and flavor. In the past it has been referred to as the Butcher's Tenderloin. They generally kept them for themselves as they didn't appear very pretty and there is only one, per side, per steer. IMHO they are marinated because most people don't like their mild liver type flavor. Thanks for you input. Not a real popular cut, but I love them!

I finally got my hands on one last month. S/P and hot n fast to rare over lump. Good eats! Over cook and it will get tough.

Agreed. And that's what I did. Did a Moho marinate though!

I have never seen them advertise here until above mentioned. It lives up to the hype as butchers steak and not bad price wise. The grain took me for a loop. I will definatly track down another one for sure.

Love me some Hanger Steak. There's a place in town that has a special on them on Thursday nights and its packed. I think they marinate theirs too, but I dont know what it is. Yours looks tastey!

Damn that looks great, and Mojo w/sour orange is an outstanding marinade.
