Marinated and Grilled Hanger Steak
The hanger steak is not as common as many other steaks but is an excellent choice if you can find one. They are often marinated, especially with a marinade containing an acid such as vinegar or citrus juice. It is a tender steak that is somewhat squishy when rare but is an excellent choice for medium rare, but not beyond medium.
