About this cut
Picanha is a lean cut with a nice fat-cap that is traditionally grilled over hardwood charcoal to rare or medium rare. Score the fat in a cross-hatch pattern, season with your favorite rub, or just salt and pepper, and grill. You can also cut it across the narrow end in 2" wide strips, and skewer for grilling. Since authentic Picanha is cut from the round (hindquarter), we fabricate our "Mock Picanha" from the shoulder-eye of our pastured Black Angus beef, which is a a similarly lean muscle with a nice fat cap. Do NOT cook past 130F, or this cut will be tough.
Our ranchers graze their cattle on pasture in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, where they enjoy a carefully balanced diet of grass, forage crops and hay that never includes hormones or growth promoting antibiotics. You'll immediately notice the incredible flavor in the meat, and the fat on this cut, from our pasture-raised beef. At Grow & Behold, every cut is trimmed to perfection, carefully packaged, frozen at peak quality and delivered right to your door.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Grill to 130F, let rest, slice against the grain.
Sous Vide at 130F for 12-18 hours. Sear hot on all sides.

I scored the meat, drizzled some EVOO on, lightly covered with montreal steak seasoning then into the sous vide bath for about 6.5 hours at 130 before searing on all sides in a pan on the stove top. Perfection.

Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Number of Packages". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box). If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.1lbs, and the price shows as $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.1lbs and will cost $39.99.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .65lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .35lbs (note that some may be slightly larger and some slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
