If you’ve ever been to a Brazilian grill style restaurant, you know that the grilled meats just keep on coming! One of the cuts that you’ll probably be served is “picanha”. Picanha is a popular Brazilian cut of meat that is roughly similar to the the Top Sirloin or Top Butt Steak you can order at Lake Geneva Country Meats. This recipe skewers and grills “picanha” and then serves the steak with a home made “molho a campanha” sauce – a delicious mix between pico de gallo and chimichurri that brings fresh veggie flavor to the meal. If you have a rotisserie cooker, try cooking the steak over the rotisserie for an even more authentic Brazilian take on the recipe! Do you have a favorite Brazilian recipe?
