New to the Horse & Groom is the Onglet Steak, a steak that is full of flavour that is still trying to make it's name in the UK.
Onglet is one for the steak connoisseurs out there, a real gem of a steak! The onglet is a steak that has its own character and whilst having a different, harder texture to other steaks, the taste more than makes up for this meat is extremely succulent and has more beef flavour than most other steaks the grain of the meat is coarse but loose. Onglet is a cut of beef that hangs beneath the diaphragm of the animal near the flank (which is why it’s sometimes called hanger steak in other countries). The steak has quite a coarse grain but due to its positioning on the animal does relatively little work and is therefore quite tender.
It is a very popular cut in France where it is called Onglet, and is often preferred above most other steaks. The name Hanger Steak comes from America. The cut is prepared from the body skirt muscle which is situated near the last rib and the spine close to the kidney.
