    I had to look it up; never heard of hanger steak. From the description it sounds like it has to be prepared just right or it's tough.

    I had 3 slices of Domino's cheese pizza... no toppings. It sucked.

    i don't know that it's overly complicated. don't overcook it (rare or medium rare, only) and cut across the grain. it's super flavorful. and i looked it up on lobel's ny and it's not even an expensive cut of meat.

    it's different than the skirt steak. it's a different cut, but it is located by the skirt.

    i think when i was a kid it wasn't sold separately. its a small piece of meat: maybe just a pound or so. maybe it was sold with the skirt as one piece. My father used to broil it while my mom made soup with the rest.

    he's lying

    flank steak used to be low-class meat but the capri wearers have since elevated the cut
