When fresh and crisp, green beans are one of the best-tasting vegetables in the market. Especially when dressed up in a Chinese sauce of hoisin and sesame oil. Not only are these delicious beans something to get excited about, the flat-iron steak is destined to be your new favorite cut. Inexpensive and more tender than strip steak, flat-iron is from a part of the shoulder, so there’s a lot of flavor and marbling. Cook it like you would any steak, hot and fast, for the best results.
