[Costco] Costco.ca: Argentinian Beef Picanha $59.99 at Costco.ca after $20 off

I personally didn't try it but some reviewers say it's a best beef they ever tasted. Expires tonight.

Ordered 2 because.... why not?

Will try this sous vide too.

Thanks OP!

*edit* - as quite the lover of beef (several trips to Japan for Matsusaka beef, Alberta beef when we're at home...), I'm very excited to try multiple ways of cooking this!

this better than the Wagyu beef at Costco everyone was going nuts over?

$20/lb seems kinda expensive for this cut.
Likely a factor of overnight shipping and it’s smaller size vs. other cuts (e.g. 5lb ribeye for a similar cost per lb at $23/lb).

This is one of the few produces that Canada's is decent and fair in price, so support local?

No, this a cut of beef. Wagyu is a particular type of cow. Now if you can get your hands on Wagyu Picanha, pretty safe to say there isn't anything left to live for in the beef world.

Ordered this once before.

Was good but I wouldn't order at $80. I'm tempted to order again and reverse sear it, but boy was it smokey on the kamado. Dare I say it was too rich?

Picanha is a Brazilian cut not Argentinean.

The price even with $20 off is too expensive at more than $40/kg and you can get it for 2/3 of that price at any latin butcher (Iasenza or St-Viateur butcher in . Montreal)

As you can see in the pic there's a big chunk of fat on top that makes the cut delicious as it renders while cooking but keep in mind that you are paying rib eye price for the fat too.

Thanks Op for the post

I pay $25/kg at my local butcher, obviously not Argentinian, so considering the logistics this has potential to be a good deal. (I’m Brazilian btw)

For god’s sake, don’t take off the fat (eat the f*** thing), just coarse salt on an open extra hot grill, rare or medium-rare. 1 inch or thicker cuts. If cooking the whole thing, sear the whole piece before slicing it. Then you need less time to sear it.

Enjoy boys!

You are right. Maybe as Argentinean the listing didn't sit well on me having so many good cuts to offer. Price is not great nonetheless. And I'd feel like buying brazilian dulce de leche 🤷
