Worth hanging on for
This rather forgotten choice is a flat cut from the diaphragm or lower belly. Hanger steak is a tender grass fed steak with a rich beef flavour.
You should fry quickly and serve with chips. Hanger is the classic steak used in France’s steak frites, so if you like your steak tender, packed full of flavour then for a change forget the fillet and try our Yorkshire grass fed beef hanger steaks. Packs of 2 x 8/9oz/254gm.

My partner is a veggy, and I don't eat an awful lot of meat. When I do, I like it to be as ethical as possible, and a little bit special. I purchased these unusual grass fed steaks for a special occasion meal, and they did not disappoint. I've had hanger once before, at a friends bbq. He sliced it thinly and flash grilled the slices. It was awesome.
These steaks were exactly as I remembered them - the most amazing beefy flavour, tender and thick.
I would warn though - if you don't like strong beefy flavours, these are not for you.
Apparently, you have to cook this fast, otherwise it can go tough. I am also told by a friend in the restaurant trade that it is best served at least medium rare, and is not a good cut to have rare.
I cooked from room temperature, brushed oil generously onto the steak and seasoned, then placed it into a blisteringly hot stainless steel pan for 3:30 each side. I held it on one narrow edge for a few seconds just to seal it up.
Then I rested it for a generous 15 minutes. Following the rest, the steak went into my oven at 200c, with a meat thermometer in. On reaching 55c, the steak came straight out, back into the blistering pan for less than 30 seconds a side, just to ensure the crust was spot on. I sliced it on my plate, and served with chip-shaped super crispy roast potatoes, yorkshire pud and a side salad.
I'll be buying this again, for sure!
Bloody amazing!! Great flavour and very tender. Seasoned only with salt, barbeque around 350c 3 mins a side rested for 6 mins touch more salt and a good grind of pepper. I will be buying these again.
Fantastic meat - this company always hit the spot
