The picanha (also know as the culotte or culotte 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.

Waygu Picanha for the win!
When I was 25 I was introduced to Picanha, my wife is from Brazil, and even after acouple trips to Brazilian steakhouses Picanha was good but not my favorite.........my father in law swore by the cut and thank to him I came around ( he makes a killer Picanha!) I had t seen him in some time and decided to get a Father’s Day gift for both of us the beautiful waygu Picanha..........Jesus was it amazing!!! He even said it was the best Picanha he’s ever had! We cut the Picanha into steaks and salted them with Brazilian salt. It was an out of body experience, needless to say I’ll be getting one of these a month!

SRF Team : Hi Dustin,
Thank you for taking the time to write this review! We are so happy to hear you and your father in law enjoyed the American Wagyu Picanha!
Bought one of these last week and cooked it on my Rectec Wyldside Rotisserie this weekend. Was called "the best steak ever" by many in attendance. Great product that will be a go-to at my house going forward.

I go to alot of Brazilian steakhouses and this is my favorite cut. They do a good job but this quality blows what they're serving out of the water. Can not recommend enough!

SRF Team : Thank you so much for the positive feedback, Kyle!
Ordered the Picanha, recommend by one of my customer. Followed instructions on how to cook. Came out beautifully medium Rare. But the meat was tough and very veiny. 95% we spit out because it was so chewy. Definitely would not order again!

SRF Team : Hi Maxi, thank you for bringing this to our attention! The Picanha should be a tender cut and we apologize this was not the case for you. Due to our products being natural, this could be a one-off situation and we would appreciate the chance to make this right! Be on the look out for an email from us.
Ordered American Wagyu Picanha
and American Wagyu Skirt Steak two weeks ago. Chose a delivery date a week in the future. Meat arrived on the day chosen. Packaging was outstanding. Meat still 98% frozen. Meat was delicious. Worth the price. Just placed second order. Another AW Picanha and trying AW Bavette. I hesitated to order meat online. Visited Snake River Farm's and window shopped for several months before placing order. Shouldn't have been concerned. Meat was great. Delivery packaging and arrival date were spot on. Good Company
