170g/6oz Featherblade Steaks
The Featherblade steak (or feather steak) is one for those of you who know how to track down an unusual bargain cut from their butcher. Far more versatile than it is given credit for in Britain, (where we tend to braise it), in Europe and across in the USA, where it is more popular, it is great grilled on the BBQ.
Taken from the shoulder blade of the cattle, it has a distinctive ‘feather’ like tissue running through it, and although small it packs a lot of sweet flavour.
Growing in popularity now thanks to it's appearances on TV with celebrity chefs such as Tom Kerridge and Jamie Oliver.
Serve rare to medium-rare so as not to allow it to toughen.
