Bavette Steak

A cheaper cut of beef popular in France, coming from the area we know as skirt or flank. It's strong on flavour, but weak on tenderness, so needs to be fried/grilled rare (or thereabouts), or it will become tough.

Tenderising with a meat hammer will help, but shouldn't be overdone, or you'll lose valuable juices and hence flavour.

An overnight soak in a little olive oil will do the trick, if you have time.
