Picanha steaks sous vide recipe I'm sure you have heard this word 'picanha' before. When a friend told my about it, I was not sure what kind of cut it was. Picanha is a cut of beef first made popular in Brazil, and later adopted in Portugal, and in Brazil it is the most prized cut of meat. And, for a reason - it's one of my favorite cuts of meat. In my opinion, sous vide is the preferred technique to prepare it!

Below this recipe you'll find my video that shows the preparation - but somethings I have learned after:
1. Use a paper towel to dap the meat dry before searing
2. Allow the meat to cool down quickly for 10 minutes before searing

On this page you'll find a great introduction on sous vide basics and how to turn good into great.
