Picanha Wagyu | BMS 8-9

Regular price $49.99

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. 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 and flavorful.

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).

BMS8-9? HOW DOES THAT WORK?

Steers are graded based on the amount and distribution of marbling in the ribeye muscle at the cut surface after the carcass has been ribbed between the 12th and 13th ribs. That means that the Picanha is graded based on the marbling of the Ribeye (graders do not inspect Picanha or ANY other muscle... but the RibEye)

Not every Picanah will be marbled like a Ribeye, it's Picanha. Not a Ribeye. 

What this means is that your Picanha may be marbled like a RibEye BMS 8-9 or it may not. A steer graded BMS 8-9 will definitely be high quality and will have superior marbling...  but if you are expecting superb marbling the sure bet is to go with a RibEye or go for Japanese A5 beef.

Do note that marbling is not a driving indicator of tenderness, hence not all beef graded "Prime" is equal.

We do offer Australian BMS8-9 Picanha for a slight premium. We feel the taste is different and actually prefer the Domestic Picanha. But Australian Picanha marbling is more consistent as the inspection process of Wagyu in Australia is government regulated, unlike in the US where Wagyu programs self grade.

HOW DO I COOK IT?

The first video we have ever made, and of course... it had to be about Picanha. Learn to grill Picanha in less than 3.5 minutes!

 

WHY WEIGHT RANGES?

While the Picanha  (aka Coulotte) is not a muscle it is not a steak.. meaning, we don't get to trim it and cut it to an exact weight. Each steer will be different and its Coulotte will be of a size... because we sell online at pre-determined prices we have divided the Coulottes in weight ranges. We price the Picanha to the lower end of the weight range... so if its a 2-3 lb, we are pricing it at 2 lbs. So while you may be getting the smaller end of the weight, range... you are still getting what you paid for.

Butter

This was an awesome Picanha, the texture was like butter. Even while I was cutting into steaks, the fat was melting by the warmth of my hand. This is an enjoyable piece of meat from start to finish. Great flavor and a lot tenderer than a Filet Mignon or nicely marbled Ribeye. Everyone loved it!

Will order again

Arrived fast, well packed, and cold. Insulated pag with three reusable freezer ice packs.

Wagu bms 8-9 was amazing. 2-3lbs picanha can easily feed four people because of the richness of the meat. I Sous vide at 133 then I seared the picanha in the run off fat from the bone barrow I also ordered. Going to see a cardiologist tomorrow because of this meal, but was well worth it and will do it again.

Wagyu Picanha BMS 8-9

The meat was well marbled, probably consistent with 8-9 grading, maybe a little under. The flavor of the steak was outstanding with very minimal seasoning applied before or after cook. Would buy again.
