Grilled Bavette (Tagliata) Steak

Bavette is best grilled using the two zone or direct/indirect method. This allows a good sear for both sides, and moving the steak to indirect heat to finish. This grilling technique prevents scorching or burning the Bavette over a hot flame, since with Bavette there is a thinner side on both ends. Bavette is very tender, and so rare or medium rare is the recommended finishing temperature for this lean cut of beef.

  2. Trim extra fat off bavette steak and pat dry. Combine salt, pepper, and garlic powder and sprinkle generously over both sides of the bavette steak.
  3. Place the steak over direct heat for two minutes or until you see a sear develop. Flip the steak and place back over direct heat for another two minutes or until you see a sear develop on that side.
