I've been tasked to bring the meat to a Brazilian BBQ this Saturday.
My problem is that I have no idea what kind of beef cut would be traditional at a such an event.
I asked a Brazilian friend of mine but he did'nt know what the name of it would be in english. No, I don't have the portugese word for it.
Can anyone tell me what would be the best choice for this BBQ ?
Wonderful Brazilian BBQ at Piccana Churriscaria???
In Burbank California
It is all you can eat
They bring the meat to you and will not stop until you tell them to
as well they have a salad bar too
There are 16 kinds of meats from beef, filet, sausages, chicken, pork, etc.
It is too good
On Mondays dinner is at the Lunch price
It is always crowded too
I think the quintessential cut for a Brazilian BBQ would be Pichana (spell?). I think its a part of the top sirloin. I've also been told it only comes from a certain breed of cows common to Brazil. It's very good/tender and worth seeking out. You might want to call a local Rodizio place for a source.
