What is flank steak called?

Hello again there,

I tried to look for flanke at the market and didnt find anything. I did some googling and found Bauchlappen and DŁnnung? What is the correct translation? and I forgot what it is supposed to look like...

Thank you so much!

It's called "Leistenfleisch" in German or "Bavette" in French. The Swiss, at least in the German-speaking part, don't really appreciate Leistenfleisch. Last time I saw some at a Migros, it was labelled as animal feed...

Re: What is flank steak called?

My experience is that bavette is universally understood by butchers in both the French and German part of the country. I know it's not the correct name in German, but they tend to give me the bit of the animal I'm after.

It's a much more popular steak in the French-speaking parts of the country.

Note, though, that unless you ask specifically for a single piece of bavette, you're likely to get them cut into small, thin steaks. I typically marinate mine and cook it whole (1kg+) on the grill -- this method of cooking is unknown here. The bavette here is a thin, cheap, quick frying steak.

It was less than CHF 10 actually and it came in a nice 1 kg lump.

Trouble is that Siedfleisch can also be chuck ("breast") or shin.
Both are more expensive than Leistenfleisch in CH. Heaven knows why
