Been a bunch of pichana threads lately, so here is my shot at it. Started out with a nice roast.

Didn’t need much trimming on the fat side, but had a big piece of silver skin on the meat side. That is about all the trimming needed.

I marinated it overnight under vacuum.

Then I mixed up a rub, with mustard, CBP, garlic, & horseradish.

Rubbed it over the roast & into the R/T at 180 degrees with a water pan.

It took 4 hours to reach 125 IT, which is where we pulled it at. I was going to sear it off, but the outside color looked so good we just rested it.

Sliced it up cross grain.

Gotta have my box potato’s & mushroom gravy!

Dinner is served! The roast literally melts in your mouth!

Took the leftover roast & cut it up & warmed it up in the gravy for the next night.

Then on to my potato’s with some veggies & pita on the side.

Still have plenty for hot roast beef Sammie’s tonight. Judy & I were quite impressed with the taste & texture of the pichana. I probably should have taken the IT a bit higher, cause it was a bit rare for even us. But last night warming it up in the gravy was absolutely delicious. The pichana just melted in your mouth. Really looking forward to the hot roast beef Sammie’s for tonight!
Thank you Robert for providing us with a wonderful meal!
Thanks for looking folks!

Looks awesome Al! I love the gravy ratio! Once in awhile we end up with meat about like that, wife will finish hers a bit more done in gravy or beef broth as well. She doesn't like as much moo as me!

Wow Al....that is off the chart good looking rare beef. Great job and pictures. Where did you find the roast? I guessing you have to go to a butcher to get that cut.

That tx smoker tx smoker Robert, he's been up to his old tricks again, I see. I've never had picanha that I know of, but that sure looks great, Al and I'll be on the way to help with anymore leftovers you may have...:emoji_wink:
 
Great looking meals all the way around. And I love box taters too. Heck, I love mashed taters no matter where they come from.

Jim

Thanks Jim, I could eat mashed taters & gravy almost every night!

Thanks Ryan, it was good both nights, but in the gravy it did have more flavor & was much more tender!

Looks killer Al.

Looks like you nailed the beef but where does that oyster knife come in to play?
Thanks boys!
Honestly Brian, I don’t know why that knife is there!

Yea man, go for it!
