Description

A delicacy, but relatively new to these shores, our picanha joint is inspired by the traditions of Brazilian and Argentinian butchery where the rump cap is the most prized part of the beast. If this is new to you, this joint promises incredible succulence, flavour, and tenderness. Ours are dry aged to give the beef irresistable melting quality upon cooking, while if you're in any doubt as to how to cook this Latin American specialty consult our cooking tips for chef-written advice.

How to cook

An outstanding all year round meat treat, when cooked correctly - either in the oven or on the BBQ - the Picanha Joint has no match for flavour. Be sure to massage the joint with flakes of sea salt and plenty of cracked black pepper, before placing on the BBQ or in the oven to reach a minimum temperature of 56°c. This Brazilian favourite is sublime served with Chimichurri Sauce.

About the cut

Picanha Joint

Also known as the Rump Cap Joint, a British butcher would sooner turn the rump cap into rump steaks with little fat covering. In South America it's a different story, and thankfully this masterpiece is increasingly in demand. The picanha is the prime cut in Argentina, with the thick fat covering left on to offer supreme flavour. Our picanaha joints are all dry age matured to concentrate the flavours, and ensure melting tenderness.

Tasting notes:
Region:
Smallholding Farms In & Around Yorkshire

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat from British breeds, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
