Picanha Coulotte/Top Sirloin Cap
This is hands-down the most popular beef in Brazil and at the top Brazilian Steakhouses in the US. . Picanha (pronounced pee-KAHN-yah) is known in our neck of the woods as a Top Sirloin Cap, Fat On or Coulotte.. and the fat is what makes this cut so popularly flavorful.
While it’s best cooked in open flames (charcoal or wood), it can also be cooked with gas or in the oven. This steak is hand cut and hand trimmed. It can be roasted whole, or cut into multiple smaller steaks (Picanha). You’ve got this Gaucho!
