About this Cut

The whole Australian Wagyu picanha is also known as the sirloin or rump cap. It is a larger piece  that is fantastic for slow cooking, which allows for the fat to break down creating an extremely juicy and tender piece of meat. It has incredible flavor, and its size makes it perfect for larger gatherings. The fat cap of the picanha is the secret to its flavor and tenderness, as it keeps the cut moist and soft and gives it its beefy and buttery taste. The score 8/9 is richer in fat marbling compared to the 6/7, which makes it even more tender and more flavorful.

Cooking Method: Score the fat cap, season generously, then roast or grill fat-side up. This is a larger cut that is best cooked low and slow, then seared on high heat at the end to get a nice crust. Let it rest for about 20 minutes then slice against the grain to serve. Best finished with one of our unique JPM kosher salts, and paired with our own JPM chimichurri sauce.

Recommended Temperature: 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare.

Australian Wagyu

Australian Wagyu is a testament to the art of premium beef production, blending the revered genetics of Japanese Wagyu with Australia's rich pastoral heritage. Renowned for its exceptional marbling, Australian Wagyu offers a luxurious eating experience that is both rich and nuanced. This unique breed benefits from Australia's vast, open grasslands and carefully managed grain-feeding programs, which contribute to the development of its signature marbling and flavor profile. Meticulous care in breeding and feeding ensures a consistently high-quality product that stands out in the global Wagyu market. What makes Australian Wagyu particularly unique is its range of marbling scores, catering to a wide spectrum of tastes and preferences, from the subtly marbled to the intensely rich. This adaptability, combined with the clean, natural environment of Australia, produces beef that is not only delicious but also contains a higher percentage of healthy fats compared to other breeds. Australian Wagyu is a choice for those who seek the ultimate in tenderness, flavor, and a melt-in-your-mouth experience, making it a prestigious and sought-after option for discerning chefs and gourmets worldwide.

8/9 Beef Marbling Score

Wagyu beef with an 8/9 BMS score is for those who seek the pinnacle of marbling and indulgence. At this level, the marbling is more pronounced, weaving a dense network of fat throughout the meat, which translates into an exceptionally buttery texture. The high degree of marbling enriches the beef with an intense flavor and a melt-in-your-mouth quality that is unmatched. This extraordinary level of fat integration enhances the beef's natural flavors, elevating them to a sumptuously rich taste experience. An 8/9 BMS Wagyu is the epitome of luxury in beef, offering an eating experience that is both opulent and deeply satisfying. It's ideal for special occasions or for those who want to indulge in the ultimate expression of Wagyu beef's culinary excellence. The richness and texture of an 8/9 BMS Wagyu make it a sought-after choice for those who appreciate the zenith of beef marbling and flavor.

Grass-Fed, Grain-Finished Beef

Not to be confused with 100% grass fed beef which tends to be much leaner and have more of an earthy flavor, our beef is grass-fed, grain-finished which offers a unique balance of flavor and tenderness, combining the best aspects of both feeding practices. These cattle are raised initially on pastures, where they graze on a natural grass diet. Towards the end of their lives, these cattle are transitioned to a grain-based diet, which enhances marbling — the intramuscular fat that makes beef juicier and more flavorful. This allows for a healthier cow, while still achieving the tenderness and delicious beef flavor that comes from a diet of grains.

This method not only improves the meat’s tenderness and palatability but also allows the beef to retain some of the health benefits of being grass-fed, such as higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants compared to conventionally raised beef. Consumers who choose grass-fed, grain-finished beef enjoy a product that strikes a desirable balance between health benefits and culinary appeal, making it a popular choice for those looking to enjoy high-quality, flavorful beef with enhanced nutritional properties.

Antibiotic and Hormone-Free Beef

All of our cows are raised free of any hormones or antibiotics. This practice ensures that the meat is as natural as possible, reducing consumer exposure to these substances. The absence of antibiotics in the raising of these animals helps prevent the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a significant benefit for public health. Additionally, hormone-free meat often has better taste and quality. By choosing antibiotic and hormone-free meat, consumers support more natural animal husbandry practices and contribute to a healthier environment, while also enjoying safer and more flavorful meat.
