Revered around the world Picanha (pick-ahn-yeh) is the classic Brazilian steak/roast that is served by Churrascarias (Brazilian steakhouses) everywhere. It also happens to be really very easy to make at home and incredibly delicious.



Brazil’s favourite Steak
This is Brazil’s favourite Steak which is cut from the Rump cap . You can cook it in slices for steak, cubed for kebabs - or roasted whole in the oven.

Picanha is the capping muscle over to the sirloin/rump area. It is the topmost layers of muscle covered in a layer of thick fat - which in this country is called the Tri-tip


Flavour and juiciness
It is not a muscle that moves much during the animal’s life, and so, remains tender.  The Picanha’s blanket of fat lends the meat flavour and juiciness while protecting it from any errors that may occur during grilling

Richly marbled, luscious texture, superb succulence
Richly marbled, luscious texture, superb succulence with a tenderness and mouthwatering taste that’s hard to believe - yet Picanha is rarely available in the UK as it is split and used in other cuts by most butchers

Different variations
Other countries can have slightly different variations. The capping muscle actually has a right side and a left side. One side (the larger side) is called the Tri tip, and the other side (the smaller side) is the Brazilian Picanha.

In the U.S, the Picanha is often called the top Sirloin cap (culotte or coutlotte) but the most accurate translation is the Rump cap.

In Brazil, the fat is not removed from the cut until the Steak has been cooked.

In the U.S, however, the fat tends to be cut down at the butcher shop unless otherwise directed by the customer


Absolutely astounding treat
Beef Picanha can be slowly cooked over a flame grill, open fire or barbecue - as steaks or cut into 2-3 inch thick cubes and served on skewers like a kebab. Picanha can also be roasted in the oven.
