Historically, the Bavette steak, also known as the "flap steak," hails from the sirloin or lower belly of the cow. Its name means "bib" in French, a nod to its long, flat shape. Its popularity in French bistros, where it's often served as 'Bavette à l'échalote,' has earned it a place of honor among steak aficionados.
Just like the elusive Perseus constellation, the Bavette steak isn't always the first one spotted in the night sky (or the butcher's case), but once discovered, its appeal is unquestionable. The Perseus constellation is home to the radiant Perseid meteor shower, a spectacular display of shooting stars. Similarly, the Bavette steak provides a meteor shower of flavors, offering an explosion of succulence with each bite.
