Hangers are a delicious steak anomaly: in addition to being the only steak of which there is only one per animal, Hangers can also be categorized as offal! Don’t let that scare you away though, Hanger Steak is one of the most tender and flavorful steaks you can find, with a beautiful grain and minerally notes. A choice butcher’s cut if ever there was one.
Note that this is one of the few beef cuts that is removed by our butcher before the dry aging process begins. Don't worry though — they still have a TON of flavor.
The Hanger Steak is from a muscle used to support the diaphragm of the beef. It doesn't do a ton of work, so it is extremely tender and delicious. We purposely leave this cut as one piece, with silverskin running down the middle, for optimal cooking.
This is a high and fast cook. Season the outside with salt and pepper and pre-heat some grape seed oil in a pan until it’s nice and hot. This cut takes under 10 minutes to cook and should be kept rare to medium rare. Cook whole, then run a knife along the center silverskin to separate the perfectly cooked halves.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
