This is the #1 question people ask me: What is my favorite thing to cook over fire? My answer is always grilled picanha steak.

Basically, you are going to start out by scoring the fat cap of the beef. You do not have to do this, but I like how it allows the fat to seep into the rest of the beef easily. Next you sear the whole picanha on both sides. This encapsulates the flavor and creates a great starting base. Finally, you will slice the picanha into strips, grill them over over white hot Cowboy Charcoal, and serve. The beauty of this cut is the flavor. No other cut has the texture of sirloin with the juiciness of a ribeye. Its unbeatable. Try it and you will see for yourself!

For the beginners, Picanha steak is a popular Brazilian dish that is gaining popularity across the world.

  1. Do not overcook it – Picanha is not a tender piece of meat. There is not a ton of fat in between the muscle fiber. Make sure to cook this to rare or medium rare so that it is tender. If you prefer well done, then maybe try it medium! If you can’t do that, well then maybe you should eat some chicken. Cook Picanha steak in a cast iron pan. It tastes delicious.
  2. Do not cut the fat cap off – Most American butchers will actually cut the beautiful fat cap off! Do not do this. This is what makes this cut of meat so unique. While you do not need to eat the fat if you do not want too, this beef is unique because you can choose how much fat you eat. Plus fat is flavor, so rather choose to cook the fat and let it seep into the beef than cut it off.
  3. Add Chimichurri – We all love chimichurri. I definitely recommend it on top of the Grilled Picanha.
