        The Perfect Picanha Steak

        Picanha is Brazil’s favourite steak – a delicious large cut from the rump. Triangular, and with a beautiful crust of fat on top, it’s typically barbecued then sliced to share. Because the muscle has done a lot of work, the meat can be tough if overcooked. But when seared to a juicy medium-rare, it will reward you with a fantastic, deep, beefy flavour.
