A hanger steak, also known as butcher’s steak, is a cut of beef steak prized for its flavour.
This cut is taken from the plate, which is the lower belly of the animal. It the muscle that helps support the diaphragm between a cow’s rib and loin. It gets its name because it just hangs there. In other words, the hanger steak does no work, which means it is incredibly tender.
It’s an incredible cut of meat that is value for money, but it’s generally hard to get in grocery stores but it’s very popular in restaurants and steak houses.
Another major advantage of this cut is the size – unlike other cuts such as striploin or ribeye, it’s a much smaller cut, which means you can enjoy a beautiful cut of meat without filling up your precious fridge or freezer space.
A perfect cut to sous vide or put in on a sizzling hot barbecue, it’s a crowd-pleaser that will not break your bank.
