    Used a few of the picanha steaks last night. Cut steaks, salted, SV'd 3 hours at 135º, patted dry, seared and ate. Took a few pics:

    I don't have much use for I-drive either, but I live about 5 miles west of there and only have to travel about 100 yards on I-drive to get to Seabra.

    Yea, there's a real difference between the Republic of Texas and tourist trap lando. The only place I've seen the CAB branded beef around here is Restaurant Depot, and then only selected cuts. Prime is only available at high priced retailers, then I've found it much better to order on-line from someplace like Double 8, Jimmy P's or Meat N Bone at not much higher price. Local farm stores are great for pork and poultry, but essentially all of them handle grass fed beef exclusively.

    I just saw it priced at 12.99 a lb, even cheap in our area is 9.99

    Certified Angus Beef is generally supposed to be upper choice, lower prime. I can tell you that the meat cutter I buy my beef from orders CAB exclusively and it's as good as most prime I see in the grocery or big box stores.

    Isn't CAB choice?

    Sorry to disagree Troutman it also makes great burgers and at $2.00 a pound less than I can get chuck to grind into burger, why not? Of course, around here picanha is common in all the grocery stores, so easy enough to get for grilling. I only grill picanha hot and fast, churrasco style. I consider making a roast out of it a waste of good meat.

    I generally buy CAB Picanha in two or three packs for $5.99/lb so the price shown, even at choice quality is very good. Since there's very little fat in the cut (outside the fat cap) I don't think the grading is that big a deal. I'd buy that all day long and skewer or roast. Wish I was closer to you !!!

    Dudes, that's Picanha. You don't denigrate it by making burgers out of it. It cooks up better than Tri-tip and just as tender.

    My freezer is so stuffed, I can't take advantage of the sale. But I have in the past. I just can't stand I - Drive.

    Yes sir! These make great ground beef even at the regular price. Very easy to control the fat content from near zero to ~ 20% depending on what you want. Plan right now is to cut a nice thick steak out of several of the thick ends, grind some for burgers and use about half for hot dogs. We've recently got into home made hot dogs as the doc is on my a$$ about sodium, and I love hot dogs. Home made <<< salt.
