  • Summary

    Hanger steak is the king of what I call weeknight steaks, casual cuts of leanish meat that deliver delicious flavor without a lot of expense or fuss. The skinny strip of flesh tastes best cooked hard and fast, for a crispy char on the outside, and left nice and pink inside. Slice it with a significant slant across the grain for the best eating texture. If you can find a grass-finished hanger steak, you’ll get leaner meat and a higher proportion of healthy lipids, such as omega-3s and CLAs. The bad news: hanger steak—or onglet, as it is sometimes known—can be hard to find. Even my regular butcher runs out somewhat frequently. Don’t fret—just substitute flank steak.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 pounds hanger steak (about 2 pieces), center membrane removed, or flank steak
    • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil
    • Flaky sea salt (optional)
    • Fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, for garnish
    • Tangy tomato relish, recipe follows
    • 2 14-ounce cans cherry tomatoes, drained, or three cups fresh
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
    • 1 medium red onion, chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes, such as Aleppo or Marash
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and minced
    • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
