Cap of Rump - Picanha - Argentina
Please note this product is available in multiple weight variants
Famous in South America as we cook it in churrascos or asados. The blanket of fat covering the meat is what creates succulent, juicy flavours within the cut.
Our signature cut in our restaurants, this Argentinian Picanha develops very distinct flavours and aromas due to the grass-fed diet of the animals.
The Cap of Rump as a joint has really good natural marbling and, as a result, can be perfect as a roasting joint or as individual steaks.
Regardless of how you choose to cook this cut, it has to be noted that due to the grass-fed nature of the beef ensure you don't cook it too quickly or overcook it to avoid it ending up tough or chewy.

It is such a beautiful one, isn't it? We are truly delighted to hear you have loved it so much, Angela. Than you for taking the time to review it - Natalia
Great cut of meat, cut into pieces to make Picanha on a rotisserie over a fire pit. Went down a treat !!!
Delighted to hear this, Bradley!
Perfect way to have it too. Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
When half of the meat consist of fat not what I considered I would be getting when I ordered such an expensive piece of meat really disappointed not worth it
Oh no, Kyle, it saddens us to hear you weren't satisfied with this meat cut. We would have loved to be able to help more if you had got in touch with us.
As you might have seen in all images both in our product page and also in our recipes and cooking guides featuring picanha, it's a cut that on top has a layer of fat. This layer is usually 1.5+/- centimetres thick. This fat helps pack in flavour and moisture during the cooking process of this cut.
If you received something that did not look like what I described above do get in touch with us. We are *always* here to help with any questions or doubts our guests and customers might have. - Natalia
