Native Breed Beef – Bavette Steak

Our beef Bavette steak is cut from the flank muscle, resulting in a very tasty steak due to the slightly higher fat content.

Once out of fashion in the UK, the bavette steak has now become popular again due it’s stronger flavour and value for money.  Bavette is tougher and more fibrous than a lot of the more popular teaks. The best way to cook it is quickly over a high, dry heat.  Bavettes will benefit from marinating and you should avoid over cooking.

Our butchers tips

Bavette steak is great value for money and delivers a stronger flavour than many steaks.

Bavette Steak is sometimes called Flank Steak and is perfect for frying or braising.  The steak is cut from the underside of the animal and is a hardworking muscle. Our butchers will cut the steak across the grain to ensure tenderness when cooked.

Bavette steak is better when cooked over high heat on, or under, a grill, in a pan or your BBQ. Be very careful not to overdo it. Aim for the rare side of medium rare, two to three minutes each side should do it, depending on the thickness. Rest for 15 – 20 minutes on a warm plate to allow it to relax, now is the time to season it. Cut into slices across the grain.

A seasoned cast iron pan is perfect for cooking. It is very important to keep the temperature high to avoid “steaming” the steak. Try not to constantly move the steak or turn it.

If you like your steak with lots of flavour, you could also choose a flat iron steak, or try a rib-eye.
