Top Sirloin Cap (Picanha) comes from the primal cut loin, sub-primal sirloin.  It is comprised of two muscles.  The small, triangle-shaped “cap” muscle is the most prized.  Also called the rump cap, rump cover, or coulotte; it’s known for its strong beef flavor.

In American steakhouses, the most popular cut from the cap is the “Baseball Cut” top sirloin steak.  Recently, the Brazilian cut of “Picanha” has surged in popularity.  It’s produced by cutting steaks, with the grain, from the center of the cap and leaving the outer layer of fat on throughout cooking.  Delicioso!
