How to make Keto Steak Picanha
  1. Place your rump cap fat side down on a cutting board and trim the triangle of silver skin. If you are not confident with a knife, you can ask your butcher to do this for you.
  2. Cut the rump cap across the grain into 3-4 evenly sized pieces, and bend each into a horseshoe shape.
  3. Thread the pieces onto a rotisserie skewer, or large metal skewer (if you don’t have a rotisserie).
  4. Spread the salt over both sides of the meat and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat your rotisserie or grill for indirect heat to a temperature between 180C/355F-200C/390F.
  6. Brush the salt off the meat and load it into your rotisserie. Place a disposable tray underneath to catch drips and prevent flare-ups.
  7. If you don’t have a rotisserie, sear the picanha for 3-5 minutes each side, then place over indirect heat.
  8. Cook until your desired doneness is reached. For a 1.5kg/3.3lb rump cap, it takes approximately 50 minutes to reach medium (60C/140F).
  9. Remove from the rotisserie and rest for 15 minutes.
  10. Slice off the skewer and serve with Chimichurri Sauce!
