Grilled Bavette with Chimichurri

A grilled bavette steak is on a grill and is being lifted by a metal spatula.

With tons of fresh herbs and spices, Grilled Bavette with Chimichurri is an easy and tasty recipe to make. Don’t be fooled by the fancy name, though. Bavette is the French word for flank steak, an easy to find and easy to cook cut of beef.

While the bavette is not a cut of steak that is as well known as the ribeye or New York strip, it is a soft and juicy steak that lends itself to cooking on the grill. Bavette steaks may be difficult to find in your local grocery store, so you might have to check with your local butcher.

For this recipe, you can use a Wagyu bavette steak for a boosted flavor and tenderness, but a prime works. This is a cut with a lot of flavors that cooks up quickly. Serve it with a flavorful chimichurri sauce and your family and friends will be in for a holiday treat!
