Prior to posting my question as to what part of the pig the pork Flat Iron Steak comes from I had already completed an internet search including Google.
Most (all but a handful) of the hits were regarding beef Flat Iron Steak.
I did see the Chicago Meat Authority listing but it did not have any info regarding the location of the cut on the pig.
The Restaurant Depot in S. California pork flat iron steak comes from Seaboard Foods/Meats. Seaboard does not use the term "Flat Iron Steak" for its pork product (item 951); they call it "Pork Boneless Loin Cap Meat" and is part of their "Prime" pork product category and refer to it as a "Pork Steak" in their description.
No where within the Seaboard site is there mention of a pork "Flat Iron Steak".
They do have one other pork steak that comes from the pork brisket.
I'm thinking Rest. Dep. decided to call it "Flat Iron Steak" instead of just "Pork Steak" or "Pork Boneless Loin Cap Meat".
It is injected/enhanced with a 16% solution and is flavorful, tender and juicy.
