Hangers are sometimes also called the “butcher’s tenderloin” because butchers would put it away for themselves, rather sell it at retail because many consider it an unattractive cut.

DETAILS

The hanger steak is a muscle that helps support the diaphragm and is so called because it hangs independently (as opposed to being connected to a bone—hence the nickname ""hanging tender"") between the rib and the loin—there’s only one per animal. The whole steak is formed in two lobes, separated by a tough vein. We remove the vein from our hanger steaks so you get both lobes in one package.

The hanger steak is a supportive muscle, rather than active muscle, so it is more tender than a muscle the animal uses a lot, the leg for example. The muscles that yield flank and skirt steaks are located roughly in the same area as the hanger and are also known for their prominent beefy flavor.

Hangers are sometimes also called the “butcher’s tenderloin” because butchers would put it away for themselves, rather sell it at retail because many consider it an unattractive cut. But looks aside, this little-known cut offers an abundance of flavor, tenderness, and juiciness if cooked no more than medium rare and sliced across the grain for serving.

Great Cut!!!!! The hanger steak was perfectly trimmed and the package had two nice pieces that easily served 4 hungry people. It was as expected tasty and tender. This was easily the best hanger steak I have ever purchased and I will buy it again. Great job Lobel\s.

My second favorite steak Takes a backseat only to the Wagyu version of the same cut. Outstanding beef flavor no fat gristle bone equals no waste! You eat every delicious bite.

My favorite cut of beef Hanger steak is to me the best cut. It has everything I want and nothing I don\t. There is no sinew gristle or excess fat since it is a muscle. It has the most beefy flavor of any cut even ribeye or skirt. Some say it is chewy but not if you slice it thin as you eat it and across the grain. Do that and you will be rewarded with great beef taste with just the right amount of bite. Also while I prefer most of my steaks rare this is a cut that benefits from cooking through to medium rare. It\s kind of round so you need to sear it on all sides to promote even doneness. I\ve always done them oven to sear method however I am going to sous vide them next time. Love both the prime and the Wagyu.
