A Beloved Cut from Brazil

Would you like to try and taste a beloved cut from Brazil? 12 Cuts Brazilian Steakhouse is here to satisfy your tongue's curiosity. This flavorful and tender cut of beef is a big hit in Brazilian barbecues. But what makes it so special? Let's find out!


A Premium Cut

Picanha is a cut of beef taken from the top of the cow's rump. It's known for its distinctive triangular shape and the fat cap that covers one side of it. In the United States, it's often called "sirloin cap" or "rump cap." There are a few reasons why Brazilians love Picanha. First, it's a very tender cut. This means it's easy to chew and very juicy. Second, it is a package filled with flavor.


A Beloved Classic

The traditional Brazilian way to cook Picanha is on a barbecue. Brazilians cut the Picanha into thick strips and curl them onto metal skewers. Then, they sprinkle the meat with coarse salt. No marinades or heavy sauces are needed. The meat's natural flavors do the talking!

Next, you need to skewer the barbecue. The heat cooks the meat and melts the fat. The result? A succulent, flavorful steak that's crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.


Steakhouses of Brazil

In Brazil, people enjoy Picanha as part of a "churrasco," or barbecue. We serve it with sides like rice, beans, and farofa (a dish made from cassava flour). But you can also enjoy it with your favorite sides, whether that's fries, salad, or roasted vegetables. Picanha is a Brazilian barbecue star that's worth trying. It's a cut that delivers tenderness, flavor, and simplicity.
