The Bavette Cut

The bavette is the really long tail on the T-bone steak that butchers usually throw away or use to grind up for hamburger meat. Underly says that you can now find this cut whole, or request it in advance, and likes to think of it as a thicker version of a skirt steak. Incredibly versatile, it practically melts in your mouth after some thorough tenderization. At $8 to $10 per pound, it’s quite the steal when you’re looking for a nice cut of meat.
