And then my freezer was full again

I picked up my 1/3 cow last night, and all the meat eating I did over the weekend paid off; all the beef fit in my freezer.  Just barely, but yay none-the-less.

Here is a list of the cuts I received:
1 brisket
1 flat iron steak
1 flank steak
1 package sirloin steak*
2 packages rib steaks*
4 packages T-bones*
5 packages cubed steak*
2 packages country-style short ribs**
3 packages soup bones***
1 rump roast
1 tenderloin
1 tri-tip
1 sirloin tip roast
3 packages stew meat***
29 packages ground beef****

* Each of these packages generally contain 2 - 4 steaks
** Each of these packages contains about 6 short ribs
*** I'd say 2 lbs for each package
**** Each package is 1 - 1.5 lbs

I have never cooked with a flat iron steak.  Any ideas?
