Ask the Butcher: How do I host a grill party?
What's the best cut of meat to impress your guests this 4th of July?
The Picanha. You may recognize it as a tri-tip, but what makes this cut impressive and different is the generous fat cap. The picanha is famous at Brazilian steakhouses and grills up beautifully. I like it best served with a salsa verde but if you want to go more traditional, you can sprinkle on some yucca powder. It’s been a customer hit from day one since it feeds a crowd and keeps well for leftovers. Picanha tacos are my next day go-to. Plus, with Brazil in the World Cup, we have seen more customers trying it for the first time for watching parties!
