Sold by the pound, Ranchera is very similar in muscle structure and texture to the true Skirt Steak, but you'll get much more meat at a much better price! Also somewhat thin, this cut will look like the bigger, beefier cousin to a Skirt Steak when unfolded. Ranchera is also called Flap Meat in Mexican cooking and is more common as fajita and carne asada than you'd realize.
This week, our Ranchera came whole, in a 4-6 pound whole muscle cut, folded in the package. It could easily feed a large family or gathering, or be packaged for leftocers to accompany your sandwiches or salads. It is wonderful when prepared correctly, and has intense flavor.
