View Full Version : My first Flat Iron, and Ceviche:)

10-20-2009, 10:15 PM
Picked up some flat irons on sale at Kroger today. Came home and searched on how to cook them. Taking advice from an earlier post by RTD, I rubbed with Dizzy Pig Cowlick and seared on the Egg at 550F to an internal of 130F in the thickest part.

All rubbed and ready to go

Made Ceviche tonight after tasting it for the first time this past weekend. Really good stuff. I guess this qualifies as a Surf and Turf night.

The flat iron came out great, tho its not RTD quality I'm sure. Still working on the hi-temp sear without burning it. All in all, I was really happy with it and left overs for fajitas tomorrow:-D

Looks good. I have never seared them. I do mine at 400 degrees, five minutes per side. It's our favorite steak. It's also the only piece of meat I do by time and not internal temp.

pictures on request in the event you want to see how this method looks :wink:

BTW, outstanding ceviche, looks excellent!

Here is the Ceviche recipe as I have it. Following the peeling and the deveining of the raw shrimp, I let it marinate in the lime juice for 1 hour (just because 5 minutes does not seem long enough to me to "cook" the shrimp, I had rather be safe than sorry)then add the other vegetables and let set for 2 hours. just before serving I added the wooster, ketchup, & SnP. Instead of saltines I served with blue corn tortilla chips.

Avocado Shrimp Ceviche-Estillo Sarita


* 2 pounds large shrimp - peeled, deveined and chopped
* 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
* 5 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
* 1 white onion, chopped
* 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
* 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
* 1 tablespoon ketchup
* 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced


1. Place the shrimp and lime juice into a large bowl, and stir to coat. Let stand for about 5 minutes, or until shrimp are opaque. The lime juice will cook them. Mix in the tomatoes, onion, and cilantro until coated with lime juice; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2. Remove from the refrigerator, and mix in the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, hot sauce, salt and pepper. We have our own hot sauce recipe, but you can use whatever hot sauce you like, or leave it out and let people add their own when serving.
3. Serve in glass tumblers and top with avocado pieces. Set out extra Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, lime wedges and hot sauce for people to individualize their dish. Serve with saltine crackers.
