Bavette is our budget steak: big on flavour, but easy on the pocket.
Bavette, also called Flank steak is a cut of beef taken from the abdominal muscles or lower chest of the steer. French butchers refer to it as bavette, which means "bib". Similarly, it is known in Brazil as fraldinha.
Ideally cooked on a white hot BBQ, lightly oiled with Mellow Yellow, this cut is best cooked very very hot, we mean white hot and quickly to be pink in the middle. It makes an incredible steak sandwich or slice nice and thin to top a steak salad.
All of our beef is 100% grass-fed without exception. Most of our producers are PFLA certified and many of them are using Holistic Planned Grazing techniques to put more carbon into the ground than the farms release meaning a net loss for the atmosphere.
The farmers we select from keep rare breeds that are best suited to the land they are farming. These breeds are chosen for their hardiness meaning they can thrive on pasture and be outside in all but the very worst of weather.
All of our beef is slower grown to achieve a deeper richer flavour that is linked to the land and the variety of herbs, grasses and wildflowers that the animals eat. We recommend trying the same cuts from different farms to see the difference that breed and diet can make. This really is the craft meat revolution.
