Wagyu 'Bavette' Flank Steak, BMS 4-5, Frozen, +/-500g
Bavette steak is a popular cut in France thanks to its excellent flavour and reasonable price. It is the flank or skirt of the cow, which has a high fat content and therefore lots of flavour. The amount of fat marbling through the meat of the Wagyu breed gives it extra flavour and a soft texture. A good way to tenderise the meat even further is to bash with a steak hammer or rolling pin, then leave it in thyme-infused olive oil in the fridge for 48 hours. Sear briefly in a very hot pan before resting and serving.
