WHAT IS PICANHA?

Picanha (pronounced pee-KAHN-yah) is more widely known as Top Sirloin Cap Fat On in the USA. This fat is what makes all the difference. It's the most popular cut of beef in Brazil.

Brazilian Steak Picanha packs a lot of flavor and offers one of the best price-value propositions. While Picanha is best cooked in open flames (charcoal or wood), it can also be cooked with gas or in the oven.

This product has been wet aged for 30+ days to improve tenderness. This steak is hand-cut and hand-trimmed.

WHAT MAKES OUR PICANHA BEST IN CLASS?

You do not have to look hard to find cheaper Picanha. In fact, your local butcher shop will surely advertise "Prime" Picanha for about 20-25% less than we sell if for. But the devil is in the details. There is plenty of "Prime" Holestein Picanha out there. Meat N' Bone carries USDA Prime, G1 Certified, Angus Picanha with a 3/4 fat layer and that is what makes it special.

This Picanha cut we sell is very hard to procure. There are very few cases of this product out in the market.

You will not only get the beef marbling that comes with the grade of Prime, but you are eating premium beef from Angus steers ("A" maturity), fed with premium grain and pasture. These are steers that weight less than 1,050 lbs. This is "the good stuff" raised and processed in America, aged and cut in Chicago. 

From our blog: Marbling is not a driving indicator of tenderness, hence not all beef graded "Prime" is equal (/blogs/the-clever-cleaver/understainding-beef-marbling-tenderness-indicators) .

HOW DO I COOK IT?

The first video we have ever made, of course, had to be about this incredible Brazilian style Picanha Steak. Learn to grill Picanha in less than 3.5 minutes!

WHY WEIGHT RANGES?

While the Picanha (aka Coulotte) is not a muscle, it is also not a steak, meaning, we don't trim it and cut it to an exact weight. Each steer will be different and its Coulotte will be of a size because we sell online at pre-determined prices we have divided the Coulottes in weight ranges. We price the Picanha to the lower end of the weight range, so if it's a 2-3 lb, we are pricing it at 2 lbs. So while you may be getting the smaller end of the weight, range, you are still getting what you paid for.
