The flank, also known as the bavette, is from part of the belly or skirt. You'll need to begin this recipe a day ahead.
Note Ask your butcher for beef trimmings or beef off-cuts for a stock base. To check whether potato will turn out, run a knife around edges of pan, carefully tap on bench and shake - if it doesn't loosen, return to oven to cook further.
