The internal temperature should reach 125 degrees F, which ensures that the meat is cooked through but still juicy and tender. The meat should also be allowed to rest for a few minutes before slicing to ensure that the juices are distributed evenly throughout the meat.

Once the picanha is cooked and rested, it is sliced into bite-size pieces, and served with warm corn tortillas and a generous helping of salsa verde. This recipe is perfect for a family dinner, a weekend barbecue or a special occasion. It is sure to be a hit with everyone who tries it.
