Picanha

Picanha (Rump Cap cut) is the most popular beef cut at  “rodízio churrascarias” (all-you-can-eat or rotation service barbecue restaurants). The Picanha cut originated in Rio Grande do Sul state in South Brazil. It is usually served grilled  typically seasoned only with rock salt, with the thick layer of fat down until most of it melts away and the remaining fat becomes crispy. It also can be roasted in a whole piece on a spit and cut in slices,  so that several people may share a single piece.
