  • 1.5 pound Bavette Steak (We like Snake River Farms American Wagyu)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic

Bourbon Peppercorn Sauce

  • ¼ cup whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon crushed peppercorn
  • ½ cup beef stock or bone broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Grilled Bavette Steak

  • Preheat grill for two zone or direct/indirect method.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Move the steak to indirect heat, and cover. Check temperature after five minutes and remove from the grill when the temperature of the thickest part of the steak reaches 125 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Let the steak rest for 10 minutes, then slice against the grain. Plate, and drizzle sauce over the steak.

Bourbon Peppercorn Sauce

  • Preheat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat or direct heat on the grill. Pour bourbon and peppercorns in as you see a small amount of smoke coming from the pan. Let simmer for 1 minute and pour in beef broth, stir. Let simmer again for 2 minutes while stirring. It will slightly reduce.
  • Add the cream and salt and continue stirring for another eight to ten minutes. It will reduce. Move to indirect heat if it is boiling over, or reduce heat on the stove-top. Sauce will slightly thicken.
