Brazilian Churrasco (Brazilian Barbecued Beef)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Iron Woman

I found this recipe online from Derrick Riches guide to barbecue and grilling. If you've had Brazilian barbecue beef before, you know how delicious it is. Almost any kind of meat can be used for this recipe. If you wish you can place the pieces on a rotisserie. Serve with Brazilian or white rice. This recipe is yummy and easy!

I lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for some five years, and this recipe "reminds me of Copacabana Beach" - The only change that I made to the recipe was to use a coarser, Gray Salt (an unprocessed sea salt from France).
