The Bavette Steak

What is the Bavette Steak?

The Bavette steak, also known as flap steak, is a long, flat and tender cut of meat that comes from the bottom sirloin, near the flank steak. It is a lean cut with a long, thin shape and a rich, beefy flavor, very similar to the flavor profile of a flank steak. The average 4 oz serving of Bavette Steak has about 110 calories, 18 grams of protein, and less than 2 grams of fat. It’s also a good source of Thiamin, Niacin and Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Phosphorus and Selenium. The Bavette Steak is great for grilling because it doesn't need to be marinated. You can grill it as is, or you can slice it thin and serve it with a sauce.
