Wagyu Picanha steak from Brazil

Wagyu Picanha steak from Brazil looks like the standard Picanha cut but is more flavorful. The meat has more marbling than a regular Picanha with a richer fragrance. Each Wagyu bite melts in your mouth.

The name Picanha comes from the pole farmers used to herd cattle on the Iberian Peninsula during colonial times and the branding tool of the same name.

A multitude of premium cuts

A Wagyu Picanha is instantly recognizable from a multitude of cuts. Each cut should weigh around two pounds. Going any higher in weight results in a “coxão duro” (silverside) tougher cut.

How to cook Wagyu beef coulotte steaks

Start by bringing the Picanha steak from Brazil up to room temperature. Choose between barbecue, rotisserie, grilling or roasting. Pat the cut dry with a paper towel and trim off any pronounced skin to ensure evenness when cooking.

The golden crown

A heavy-based pan is best for cooking Wagyu Picanha steak from Brazil. Place the fat side down on high heat to render and then sear on both sides. A golden crust will emerge that can signal the end of the cooking process or you can continue for a well-done cut.

Well-timed grilling

After cleaning your fired-up grill with a wet paper towel and tongs, rub a small nugget of fat on the grate to prevent the steak from sticking to the grill. Place steaks on the outer edges for well-timed cooking. Close the hood and cook for six minutes before flipping.

To bring out the marbling and buttery flavor, place the steaks in the center of the grill after flipping and sear on both sides.

A roast for any day

Roast the Wagyu Picanha steak from Brazil whole and then slice for an exceptional treat. Preheat the oven. Rub a fat nugget on a cast iron pan. Amp up the heat and sear the Picanha fat side down. Do not use any oil because the sirloin cap fat will release.

Reserve fat for maximum flavor

Drain the fat when the cut is crisp, but don’t throw it away. Flip the meat and baste in the fat you set aside. Finish in the oven for 30 minutes. Make sure to allow the Picanha to rest before carving against the grain.

Ramp up flavors with charcoal cooking

Churrasco, traditional Brazilian barbecue, uses the steps of slicing, skewering and grilling Wagyu Picanha steak from Brazil. Carve into three or four thick crescent pieces and skewer. Season and cook over a charcoal cooker for 20 minutes. Steak should be turned over at least twice to ensure even cooking.
