Coulotte Steak: The Hidden Gem of Beef Cuts

Coulotte steak, also known as the picanha, is a cut of beef that is popular in Brazilian cuisine. It is a flavorful and tender cut that is best when cooked to medium-rare or medium. Here's a guide on how to prepare and cook coulotte steak:

First, remove the steak from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Next, season the steak generously with salt and pepper, or your favorite steak seasoning. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat until it is smoking hot. Add a small amount of oil to the pan and then place the steak in the pan, fat side down.

Sear the steak on high heat for about 2-3 minutes, until a crust has formed. Flip the steak over and sear for an additional 2-3 minutes on the other side.

Transfer the steak to a baking sheet and place it in the preheated oven. Cook for about 10-12 minutes for a medium-rare steak, or until the desired level of doneness is achieved.

Remove the steak from the oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Coulotte steak is a delicious cut that is best served alongside roasted vegetables, potatoes, or a fresh salad. It is also great for slicing thin and using in sandwiches or wraps.

In conclusion, coulotte steak is a versatile and flavorful cut of beef that is easy to prepare and cook. Give it a try for your next meal and enjoy its rich taste and tenderness.
