Allow the picanha to come to room temperature for 1 hour before cooking.


Prepare a barbecue. Make sure the coals are to one side of the barbecue to create a cool zone for cooking the meat indirectly.


Lightly coat the picanha with the oil then season with pepper and salt.


Place the meat in the cool zone for 1 hour, cooking at 92°C.


After an hour, move the picanha over the flames (250°C) and sear on each side for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 15 minutes.


Once rested, slice against the grain and serve.
