#HowToBBQRight #SirloinPicanha #BBQrecipes
Sirloin Picanha or “sirloin cap roast” is a delicious cut of beef found on the top of the sirloin. It’s typically served in Brazilian steakhouses where it’s cooked on a rodizio grill and served right off the skewer. Picanha should have a ¼” of fat cap over the meat. This fat renders as it cooks and keeps the meat flavorful and juicy.

For this recipe I’m using 2 picanha roast from Matador Prime Steak – https://www.matadorprimesteak.com/

Cut the roast across the grain and season with a good dose of Kosher Salt. (In Brazilian steakhouses that’s all they use) I also add a layer of my steak rub for extra flavor and texture.

Instead of using a rotisserie, I set up a Pit Barrel Jr. drum smoker with hanging rods to support metal skewers. Double each piece of picanha into a half moon shape with the fat cap on the outside.

Carefully thread each piece onto the metal skewers (2 pieces per skewer). Hang the skewers on the rods of the pit barrel jr and cook until the internal temperature reaches 122-125 degrees (about 25 minutes).

Once the fat starts rendering it can easily flair up, so don’t walk away and keep the lid closed as much as possible to avoid this. If you’re cooking on a regular grill grate just keep the steaks turned on a regular basis for even cooking.

Rest the picanha for 5-10 minutes before serving and carve each steak into thin portions right off the skewer. I serve it with fresh chimichurri sauce on the side.

Chimichurri Sauce
– 1 cup Italian Flat Leaf Parsley finely chopped
– 1 cup Cilantro finely chopped
– 4 cloves Garlic minced
– 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
– 2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
– ¼ cup Red Wine Vinegar
– ½ cup Olive Oil
– Salt & Pepper

Combine ingredients and store in a covered container until ready to serve.

Aren’t you Supposed to cut with the grain

Andre Greene · March 22, 2019 at 11:52 am

He cut that wrong. Picanha need to be cut with the grain. Not against.

" PIT MASTER SNACK" … love this!

Maverick Mitchel · March 22, 2019 at 11:52 am

But the thing is, that is not a real picanha.

You got what we call "coxão duro" attached to the picanha.

The real picanha is not that big.

Travis Hoover · March 22, 2019 at 11:52 am

Malcom, do you ever make your own tortilla chips?

Joseph Buckler · March 22, 2019 at 11:52 am

Brazilian steakhouses will cut these with the grain instead of across it

The Happy Hour Hound · March 22, 2019 at 11:52 am

My friend. Cut them WITH the grain when they are prepping for cook. Then against the grain to serve. This is how we do it in Brazil and the best Picanha in the world

asoom · March 22, 2019 at 11:52 am

Do you guys learn to cook in school?
A lot o brazillians try to make an american barbecue, but none seem to get a good result, you know don't get the idea and the mechanics involved in the process…
But you guys try to make a brazillian barbecue, and always seem to ace…
Greetings from Brazil.
