When it comes to cuts of beef, there is an abundance to choose from. While they are all taken from a cow, they do taste different and have their own advantages.
One cut of steak that is fairly underrated is the Coulotte steak. While you may not be as familiar with this cut of steak, it does have a few different names. You may be familiar with Top Sirloin caps or Picanha.
