Flat iron steak

Have you heard about a steak cut called a flat iron?
Wife had read how this cut was developed to be a tender cut out of a tougher piece of meat. Its all in how it cut. Well we have known about it for at least 6 months but have not seen any in the stores. Well about a month ago Kroger had some and they were on sale so we got a few. One steak is just enough for the both of us.
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1 clove crushed garlic
Place in bag with steak and refrigerate over night.
Its to hot to get the grill out so we used the George. (we know it must be good on a grill because it turned out great with the George)
We like our steaks med rare and 6 minutes it was perfect.
We must say this was as good as the T bone we had a while back.

I tried your recipe on this and it turned out really good just like you said. The only thing I did different was sub the Italian dressing with a Balsamic Vinaigarette. (Close enough) I cooked my on a broiler for about 12 min and it turned out rare to med rare.. just like I like it. Surprisingly tender piece of meat. Thanks for the recommendation.
