Organic Beef Picanha Steak

These grass-fed steaks are the little-known king of Brazilian barbecue

If there's one thing Brazil has plenty of it's beef, so it should tell you something that picanha (pronounced pe-con-ya) is the Brazilian's beef cut of choice. The Organic Butchery organic picanha steak is cut from the rump of the beef carcass and is alternatively known as 'rump cap' or 'sirloin cap'. Oddly, it's not a common cut in the UK – you'll certainly never see it in the supermarket and only rarely on the butcher's counter. But once you taste it we think picanha steak will rapidly become one of your favourites, too.

At The Organic Butchery, we know that the finest meat comes from animals that have lived high-welfare lives, and our organic grass-fed beef cattle produce steaks of exceptional quality.

Although cut from the rump, this isn't a chewy steak – picanha boasts the double whammy of delicate marbling running through the organic meat coupled with a generous layer of flavour-packed fat on top. As the steak cooks, the fat renders, adding succulence and tenderness to the already robustly flavoured beef. Because our beef cattle have a natural diet of grass, plenty of time to grow naturally to maturity and have muscles built by a free-range lifestyle, their fat is sweet and melting, not tough and gristly.

Barbecue (know in Brazil as 'churrascaria') is the classic way to cook picanha steak. The searing heat and aromatic fragrance of a wood fire cook the steak to crisp-on-the-outside-pink-in-the-middle perfection while adding a smoky seasoning at the same time. But a smoking hot griddle will do an equally good job. Season your steak with salt then using a pair of tongs, sear the fatty edge first. Once the fat is well browned, sizzling and starting to render, flip the steak onto its side and cook for at most a couple of minutes per side (for medium rare). Leave to rest for 5 minutes then serve with a simple green salad and maybe some chimichurri sauce, vivid with green herbs.
