Brazilian steak?

We went to a birthday party on Saturday at Gaucho Village in Glendale. One of the cuts of meat they served was something they called 'Brazilian steak'. It was a really lean cut of meat that was delicious.
Anyone know what cut of meat 'Brazilian steak' is?

  1. Checked their menu and it wasn't listed. I wonder if it might not be grass fed beef which is so prevalent and popular in Argentina?

            Yes, picanha seemed to be the most popular cut last I was in Belem.
