This is definitely one of my favourite pieces of meat!
Picanha. It’s Brazilian meat, and it’s goooood! Really good!
The thing is, I had a piece of dutch bought picanha of 2kg, although the traditional Brazilian chefs tell you that the original picanha is a maximum of 1 – 1,1 kg. So here’s what I did. I cut of the tip so I ended up with a nice picanha of 1 kg, and I was going to do the other side (top half) on a different way. If it’s not picanha, that doesn’t say it’s not good!

This weekend it was a gooood weekend! The weather was fantastic, forecast was good and I hade the fridge filled with beautiful ingredients. Also, it was something I wanted to try for quite some time now. Boeuf bourguignon, Dutch Oven Style.
I started out on saturday to cut the beef in squares of about 1 inch. I had about 2,5 kg of meat, so a big bowl full of meat was the end result.

This weekend we have been grillin again, as usual and saturday I had a beautiful piece of rib eye roast, about 1 kg of it.
I started out with a nice rub I found, which was very straightforward and sounded really good. The contents were the following.
- Bruised Black Pepper
- Paprika powder
- Garlic powder
- Cumin powder
Rub the piece of meat in with this rub in a generous (not too generous, though) way and place in in the refrigerator for about an hour. Meanwhile prepare your Weber OTP for indirect grilling at a temperature of about 120-130 Celcius.

One of the best pieces of meat, from my perspective, must be the picanha. It’s a very tasty piece of meat from the back of the cow. You can get the Argentina one, Scottisch one, or whatever country you like. It’s a very easy, yet very very good Q piece.
First of all, we do not do a lot of seasoning with it. I personally just start with cross cutting the fat, so the taste can go in real good and it stays roughly the same shape while burning. We then do a good twist of salt on it. When that’s done, we’re done. Pepper is done afterwards, since that will just burn off without leaving taste, in my perspective.
