A Guide to Brazil’s Best Meats

When it comes to the best prime meats in the area and a unique and mouth-watering dining experience, look no further than Gaucho’s Prime. Specializing in a type of Brazilian barbeque called Churrasco, our steakhouse offers an authentic culinary adventure that showcases the finest cuts of meats, transporting you straight to the heart of Brazil. To help you navigate the savory world of Brazilian meats, we’ve created this guide to highlight some of our must-try dishes. 

What Sets Brazilian Steakhouses Apart?

Brazilian steakhouses are renowned for their delectable meats cooked over open flames using traditional Churrasco techniques. But these steakhouses aren’t just known for how the meat is cooked, they’re also known for how it’s served. Known as “rodizio,” this dining style is where diners pay a fixed price for as much meat as they want, served one shaved slice at a time. 

At Gaucho’s Prime, our chefs expertly grill each cut to maximize flavor and tenderness, resulting in a truly unforgettable culinary experience. You’ll taste the difference as soon as you bite into our delicious Brazilian foods. Some of the prime meats you can try at our steakhouse include: 

Picanha (Rump Cap)

Arguably the most revered cut of Brazilian cuisine, picanha holds a special place in the hearts and stomachs of meat lovers worldwide. This tender, juicy top sirloin cap boasts a rich, robust flavor enhanced by the Churrasco grilling methods. When visiting us, don’t miss this dish—it’s an absolute must-try. 

Alcatra (Top Sirloin)

While picanha might be the most popular choice among diners, alcatra is equally deserving of recognition and enjoyment. Tender and bursting with flavor, this versatile cut is typically seasoned with salt and grilled with a layer of fat that melts away and leaves the remainder crispy and delicious. 

Fraldinha (Bottom Sirloin)

Fraldinha is the bottom sirloin to alcatra top sirloin. This Brazilian steak is known for its abundant marbling and irresistible flavor profile that offers an unmatched taste sensation when grilled Churrasco-style. 

Filet Mignon 

A favorite among steak lovers everywhere, filet mignon is lean, incredibly tender, and considered a true delicacy. Virtually free of fat marbling, this cut is buttery with a delicate flavor, making it a favorite among steak connoisseurs.

Linguica (Sausage)

Linguica is often confused with chorizo, except it has a milder flavor. This type of Portuguese sausage is bursting with smoky and savory flavors and is a great compliment to any meal. 

Cordeiro (Lamb)

For those seeking a change of pace from the Brazilian steak options, Cordeiro is a succulent piece of lamb in the form of bone-in steaks and chops cut from a rack. The flavor profile is rich and full of robust flavors.

Frango (Chicken)

Frango is Portuguese for chicken. Many steakhouses serve this marinated, with Gaucho’s Prime being no exception. Our Frango is slow-cooked and marinated overnight in beer and cognac to compliment your Brazilian dining experience, all served on a skewer, of course.
