Good Value

Hangar is flavorful, and very nice if cooked properly (the recipe up on this site is a good place to start). It often has a bit of tough material running through it, so if that is a problem for you, either slow-cook it, or stick with other steak cuts.

So disappointing. Too tough
From: Sandra | Date: 10/24/2018 7:01 PM
This is supposed to be a tender cut but it was as tough and chewy.  It was cooked to perfection: brought to room temp, oiled and salt/pepper rub.  Then pan seared in butter and finished off in a hot oven.  Cooked to 120, then sat for 10 minutes.  It was hugely disappointing, so tough.  Never again.

USWM - We're very sorry for your disappointment and consider this matter an anomaly!  The Beef Hanger Steak is a much requested cut and best when prepared rare to medium rare to avoid toughness.  We've returned a credit to you for the disappointing steak.

This is usually a great cut and if I see it on a restaurant menu my decision is made and I have ever been disappointed. The first time I bought one was at a fancy butcher shop in Boston and it was really expensive, but the inedible sinew running through all hangers had been removed and it was fantastic.

The USWM hangers I've bought all have the sinew intact and it's difficult to remove, so i leave it in and eat around it. But the last hanger I bought ended up dry and almost crumbly, and I almost didn't finish it. This one I marinated for a couple of hours and cooked as a roast like I do a tri-tip. Maybe that was not a good idea.

This cut is bloody and kind of smelly due to its proximity to the kidneys, so rinse it well then either pat dry and season, or throw it in a marinade. When it's good, it's fantastic, but when it's not, ugh.

*From USWM -- Thank you for your honest feedback, everyone's opinion is valid.  We're very sorry any disappointment you may have experienced because the Hanger Steaks are very popular and sell well.
