This lesser-known cut is hugely popular in Brazil and other Latin American countries. Known elsewhere as the Coutlotte, Top Sirloin Cap, or Rump Cap. Picanha is one of the most surprising and overlooked cuts of meat there is.
The fat cap provides intense flavor and is edible itself. Our Customers most frequently cut this large Picanha into 3/4" steaks and grill them. We recommend prior to cutting you score the fat cap so it does not shrivel during the cook.
Picanha I MS 6-7
We see whole picanhas prepared a variety of ways! Cooked over a rotisserie Brazilian-style, sliced into steaks and seared, Sous Vide, baked in the oven, smoked...this flexible cut can handle a LOT of preparations!
Pairs well with...
- Full-Bodied wine such as a Shiraz or Bourdeaux
- Japanese Whisky
- Club Soda with Lime
Enhanced with Dry Aging
Excellent! Picanha has a different flavor than strips or ribeye. Perhaps the dry age played a role but the family's consensus was that it was delicious! Thanks Nick for talking me through the minor delivery issue.
