Hanger steaks

Fresh Pond Market in Huron Village Cambridge has hangar steaks at their very good little butcher counter ($7.99/lb). It's a harder cut to find at markets, so I thought I'd put out the word--

              Restaurant Depot usually sells hanger and flat iron (less frequent availability) steaks in quantity if you can get someone to loan you a card. They do run out sometimes.

              I have heard folks say that they have ordered Hanger steaks from McKinnon's, not certain what they paid per-lb. $8/lb seems like the higher-end to me, but heck some supermarkets here charge nearly that for chuck and I have seen sirloin tips or flap meat for that price.

                Well thanks itaunas & everyone on this thread. Although I've had hanger steak before, it wasn't until I looked up it in Wikipedia that I discovered there's only one cut of 1 1/2 to 2 lb. per steer.

                  I just picked some up at Savenor's (Cambridge)... I see them there regularly. Weygu (Kobe) for $11.99/lb, most seemed to be about a half pound.

                    Whole Foods in Woburn had them for 8/lb.
