Note: About a month ago we upgraded our Wagyu Picanhas from BMS 7+ to BMS 8-9. Same price, more awesome. We did not update the website as we still had a mix of product. Now they will ALL be BMS 8-9.
This is hands-down the most popular beef in Brazil. Picanha (pronounced pee-KAHN-yah) is known states-side as Top Sirloin Cap, Fat On... and the fat is what makes all the difference.
This cut packs a lot of flavor and offers one of the best price-value proposition. While Picanha is best cooked in open flames (charcoal or wood), it can also be cooked with gas or in the oven
This Wagyu Picanha is one of the best value propositions for domestic Wagyu Beef. Simply put, you get a whole lot of Wagyu beef for the price. Some of our customers swear by this Picanha, while others do not think its worth the premium. That said, Wagyu has a distinct flavor as a result of the beautiful intramuscular fat that is unique to the breed... and it does make it more tender.
WHY IS OUR WAGYU PICANHA THE BEST IN CLASS?
We work with what we consider to be the best Wagyu program in the US. This program processes a small amount of steers every week (140-175) which allows them to put care into every steer. These Picanhas come from a mid sized family owned company that puts a lot of care into each cut.
We have compared this program to others from major chains and stores, and we find that it consistently tastes better and eats better. This may be because these animals are fed for longer and at a slower phase than what you will find with other wagyu brands. The genetics of their animals are superior as well they’re very selective with the bulls they use from Japan (Japanese Kuroge Tajima bull).
