Grilled Flap Steak with garlic & chile butter

This Brazilian-inspired Grilled Flap Steak is not for the faint of heart — hot peppers make for a bold-flavored, rich garlic butter to slather on the beef. This boneless cut is all flavor, surprisingly tender, and makes every one of your pennies count. And with little or no trimming required, taming this “overlooked” cut is easy glory for the griller.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; add garlic, habañero, and Fresno and sweat until softened, 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro when ready to use.

Grill steaks, covered, until browned on one side, 4–5 minutes. Flip steaks and grill until a thermometer inserted into the thickest parts registers 135° for medium-rare, 58 minutes more.

Transfer steaks to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Baste steak with chile butter while resting.
