The picanha (also know as the coulotte or coulotte steak) is a hard-to-find cut of beef that’s well worth the search. It is triangular in shape and considered to be the most delectable meats for the grill in Brazilian steakhouses. Sourced from the sirloin cap, the picanha has a tender sirloin steak texture and rich, juicy beef flavor. We’ve left the fat cap intact to gently bathe the meat with its savory essence and keep the meat moist and tender.
Of course, the Snake River Farms picanha adds the intense marbling of American Wagyu to create an exceptional eating experience. Roast our picanha whole or cut thick slices against grain to make outstanding culotte steaks. No matter how you serve this uncommon cut you’ll love its distinctive flavor and delicious complexity.

This meat was awesome!!
So I read online about some that if the pichanha Is over 2.5lb then the rest is not pichanha it's another cut of steak.. all of mind were 3.4lb and over max one waz 4.8lb.. so far had the smallest and 2nd smallest ones and I cooked the furthest the pichanha cut into 1.5 inch steaks and and made sure to leave nearly all the fat, as it's nice and soft and will render. I personally failed in my attempts to completely render all the fat but the steak was amazing none the less!! Soo good!!! I used only salt and pepper to really taste the meat. And my family ate from the 2nd one I cut which was the 2nd biggest my 2 brothers and my father were all pleased and said the tenderness was nearly that of filet mignon. This all being said I love this cut gotta get that grill to like 750 for the right rendering of the fat and it will sear it beautifully and in maybe 2 or 3 minutes only. Then set it in indirect and let it finish inside. Like I said it's amazing and I have 2 more of them and I'm probabaly going to make one for Christmas and the other before hand on thanks giving. Emm emm emm. I cant wait
Superb cut of meat. Side not somehow air got in the bag but when I checked for a leak I couldnt find one and more air couldnt get in or out but prior defrost it was totally sealed and flesh with packaging. This wasnt a big deal as when I found out I I vacume sealed it again in a normal bag along with the bag it came in and let it defrost like that. It also assured it not spilling of blood in the fridge. Only 1 leaked seemed to have had air leak in but I think it was just the air being so cold it didnt make pressure until it warmed up in my 34% F° fridge.

Best meat cut ever.
This is by far the best meat cut I have tried. I ordered one to celebrate my 50th birthday and It was a home run. I will order again but Its sold out

Tried to recreate the Brazilian experience at home for a family feast. Sea Salt rub + Big Green Egg sear using Brazilian skewers just like Fogo. Shaved off the well cooked pieces when they were ready. It was outstanding. 2.5 lbs served 4 people perfectly. Thank you! Will buy again.

Ordered two pichanas for a family meal. Arrived right on time and still frozen. A good bit of dry ice was still in the box. Family wouldn’t stop raving about how good it was. My only comment (doesn’t qualify as a complaint bc it’s not) is the sizes were 4lbs and 3lbs little wonky on sizes differences. Great meat, customer service everything. Thank you SRF!!
