Grilled Picanha with Charred Jalapeno Chimichurri Recipe

Makes: 6 servings

Preparation: 20 min

Cooking: 45 min


Picanha Steak:

  • 5 lb - Picanha roast (top sirloin cap)
  • 3 tbsp - Kosher salt or coarse sea salt
  • Charred Jalapeno Chimichurri
  • 3 Jalapeño peppers
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 Shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp - dried oregano
  • 1 tsp - Kosher salt or coarse sea salt
  • ½ tsp - Ground black pepper
  • 2 cup - Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup - fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp - Red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup - Extra virgin olive oil


  • Cut the picanha roast into 1 ½“ thick steaks. Fold steaks into a “C” shape and thread onto flat metal skewers. Season both sides with salt.
  • Refrigerate uncovered for a minimum of 6 hours, up to 24 hours, to air dry.
  • Set up your charcoal grill for two-zone cooking; empty a full chimney of hot coals over one half of the bottom charcoal grate, and leave the other half without coals. Don’t insert the grill grate yet.
  • Place jalapeños directly on hot coals and cook, occasionally rotating, until peppers are blackened on the outside and soft on the inside. Remove from heat and brush off any ashes using a pastry brush.
  • Finely chop the ember-roasted jalapeños and transfer them to a large bowl. Mix in all other chimichurri ingredients and set aside.
  • Inert your grill grate and place the picanha steak skewers in the indirect heat zone. Close the lid and cook until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 110°F, rotating skewers every 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Move skewers to direct heat and grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until the desired doneness – 125°F for rare, 130°F for medium-rare 140°F for medium, 150°F for medium well and 160°F for well done.
  • Remove steaks from heat and let rest at room temperature for 8 minutes.
  • Cut meat against the grain into thin ⅛” to ¼” thick slices. Top with charred jalapeno chimichurri and serve.

"These gloves are fantastic. I make a lot of dishes in heavy cookware and had such a hard time keeping my grip or moving the large cast iron pots. These are perfect because your whole hand is protected -- no more burns on the top of your hands, while giving you better control over what you are handing than a classic oven mitt. They're also a lifesaver if you are making anything at the top end of the temperature range."

P.J. Larson

"The gloves really work! I used them to remove hot trays from the oven, in addition to not feeling any heat at all the trays didn't slip out of my hand. I was anxious to use them while grilling and they really made the whole experience much easier. I was not worried about getting burned when I was turning the food."


"Love these gloves! I have small hands and love to bake, so I often run into problems of almost losing my grip on whatever I'm pulling out of the oven. These gloves give me a much better grip on hot cookie trays and pie dishes than the standard oven mitt. It's also a lot easier to grab oddly-shaped dishes with the dexterity of the glove, as opposed to oven mitts where you don't have a lot of control over what you're grabbing."


"I do quite a bit of smoking and it can get dicey trying to add wood chips or more water mid-smoke with your bare hands. Using oven mitts really isn't an option due to the dexterity required. These gloves seem to get the job done much better and clean up real nice."
