    threeovens's Note:

    Feijoada is a typical Portuguese dish which is now the national dish of Brazil. According to legend, the dish dates back to colonial times when the slaves made a stew out of beef and pork scraps. It is served for lunch. Here, it is given a more modern, American treatment. Adapted from "Everyday with Rachael Ray," August 2009. Serve with white rice, pickled jalapeno slices, and thin orange slices.

      This is by far one of the best recipes I have ever had and I am a picky eater! Everyone that tried it, loved it. All of the meat was tender and the ham hock gave it so much flavor. I personally pre-soaked the beans but I wouldn't change a thing about this. Served over rice, and it will be a definite hit!
