What is a good substitute for flank steak?

I like to cook flank steak on my grill pan in the kitchen and it comes out nice and tender and works great for steak salad or sandwiches. Our grocery store just recently raised the price of this steak by 1.50 per pound. Is there another cut of beef that will is less expensive but can still turn out tender on a grill pan?

    The closest substitute is probably skirt steak. If they don’t have flank, they may not have skirt either. (Hanger would be excellent also, but it even harded to find.)

    If you cut it thin enough, chuck would work.

    Probably the closest thing to flank would be skirt or hanger steak, but I’d bet that you could use plain old London Broil and still come out with something pretty darn good. I would not use filet/tenderloin.

    Flat Iron steak

    if you cut the meat thinly and against the grain, most cuts will work. I would probably go with the sirloin because it has a nice beefy flavor.

    If they have any pre-cut meat for fajitas, that is supposed to be skirt steak.
