The Hangar Steak is a small, intensely flavoured cut that “hangs” from the diaphragm. It is a popular steak cut in France. Traditionally, butchers have kept this well-known cut for themselves. Hence it was called the Butcher’s steak. In recent years, hangar steak has become popular with steak aficionados because of its rich flavour.
