At Brazilian style steakhouses, my favourite is always the Brazilian style Garlic Steak.
I’ve never tried to make it though. I can usually get enough of it while I’m there. The most recent time I went, my wife was unable to join me. When I talked about how much I enjoyed the Garlic Steak, she suggested I make it for us.
I messed around with a few different combinations, and methods, and I think I’ve settled on my favorite. This is how I make my Brazilian style garlic steak.
The Brazilian Steakhouses I’ve been to tend to use sirloin steak for the garlic steaks. Sirloin is good, but I used Strip Steak. I find strip steak to have more flavour, and I always have strip steaks available.
You can use other cuts of steak. For cutting it into cubes though, sirloin or strip steak would probably be the easiest.
A common cut of beef at Brazilian Steakhouses is called “Picanha” and isn’t a common cut of beef in Canada. The Picanha cut is from the rump. You can buy a rump roast and trim the rump cover off and use it, but I’d stick with strip steak or sirloin.
Other Brazilian steak house inspired recipes
This is not my first recipe that has been inspired from a trip to a Brazilian steak house. I first learned about chimichurri from a visit to a Brazilian steak house.
I am sure there will be more dishes inspired by trips to a Brazilian steak house, but if there are any dishes anyone would like helps coming up with, please let me know, and I will see what I can do.
