Feijoada is a Brazilian bean stew recipe.
  • ½kg black beans - cook and separate
  • 1 large onion
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • 200g bacon
  • All following ingredients (except the 'paio') are salted. They have to be washed several times, and boiled twice (just put in cold water and bring to boil; change the water and bring to a boil again). Everything (except the 'carne seca') is pork.
  • 250g pork loin ('lombo')
  • 250g 'paio' (a kind of soft pork sausage)
  • 1 tail
  • 1 or 2 tongues
  • 1 ear
  • ½kg smoked pork ribs
  • 300g 'carne seca' (dried beef - a kind of really soft beef jerky)
  1. Cut the ingredients into pieces (3x3cm to 4x4cm cubes)
  2. Put them together in a pan, add water (just to cover them), and add 1 laurel leaf. Cook until they start to become soft.
  3. In a separate pan, add oil, cook onion (sliced), cloves of garlic (chopped) and bacon (chopped). Season beans in this mixture.
  4. Add meat (and water if needed) and cook on low heat, until cooked.
  5. Serve with white rice, kale (finely sliced and simmered - use only olive oil and garlic), hot pepper sauce and oranges (peeled and sliced).
