The Picanha Steak is also known as a rump cap, Coulotte and Sirlion cap. This cut of steak is tender and juicy in taste because it holds very little fat inside the meat. A popular favourite in Brazil and America.
Cook the perfect steak, the way you like it.
Any steak can be cooked on the grill, BBQ frying or griddle pan. Ensure the cooking surface is searingly hot, smoking, the hotter the better as this will form a perfectly seared exterior.
Remove the Picanha steak from the fridge at least 15mins before cooking to allow the meat to come to room temperature. This will enhance the tenderness after cooking. Always preheat the grill or pan before starting to cook the steak.
Pat dry with kitchen paper before rubbing with oil on both sides then season with sea salt and black pepper. Try using groundnut oil as it can with stand higher temperatures without burning.
When cooking do not over handle the steak, try to limit turning to only once – halfway through.
Remove from the pan, place on a warm plate or board, cover with foil and a tea towel to allow the steak to rest for 5mins or so. Use up the resting juices on your sauce.
