    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.

    While Picanha is best cooked in open flames (charcoal or wood), it can also be cooked with gas or in the oven

    This is the best Picanha in the world and it is extremely hard to procure. This is an extremely rare find... in fact, outside of Meat N' Bone we had never seen it before.

    When cutting picanha, watch out for the grain, as for this specific cut it varies in direction. Beef will always be more tender when cut AGAINST the grain. 

    We also carry a steak version of this Picanha, check it out here! 

    ABOUT A5

    HANNARI BEEF

    In Japan it is believed that the quality of meat from female Wagyu cattle is higher than that of male Wagyu cattle. There is certainly a more refined flavor profile and a silkier texture. We came, we tried and we loved it. 

    Hannari beef is raised in a multigenerational family farm located in the prefecture of Kyoto, Japan, a farm of breeders that focused on only select female cows... hence there is a very limited production of less than 250 female cows per year. They are raised in an idyllic environment.

    The farm is surrounded by the mountains of Tamba and it is blessed with clear underground water. The cows are raised in a stress-free environment, to the point that it is hard to hear any mooing (cows moo when they are stressed). The cows are fed a different diet depending on their stage of growth and the diet is modified according to the temperature of the day.

    Our agreement with Hannari beef means we only get the cream of the crop, the cows that grade BMS12.

     

    A5 beef is measured on five factors: (1) marbling, (2) meat color and brightness, (3) firmness and texture of meat, and (4) color, luster and quality of fat.

    In the quality grade, the lowest score from the four items of the yield grade is adopted. In other words, even if grade 5 was given to marbling, color and brightness, and firmness and texture, and only fat assessments was grade 4, the quality grade of this beef is classified as grade 4. Quality grading is severely done.

    A5 means this beef excels in every single factor.It has a gorgeous webbing of fat that will make you feel a creamy mouth-feel in each bite. Its literally like tasting a cloud... a cloud of beef.

    Like all of our steaks, they come vacuum sealed and have been hand-cut by our expert butchers.
