      I couldn't find chorizo where I live so I used Polish sausage. Other than that I followed the recipe. It was okay, but a bit bland. If I make again I'll use some more spices and maybe tomatoes.

      Thanks for the post!! I enjoyed this dish on my travels, but worried I would never be able to imitate it. The more "authentic" recipes call for pork parts I either can't get, or are unwilling to use. This truly has all the flavor without the "parts."

      My husband worked in Brazil for a couple of years and has told me many times how good feijoada is and how much he craves it. Well, I gave it a try with this recipe and it as a hit. As it cooked and filled the kitchen with its wonderful smell, he called a Brazilian friend and described it - it made his Brazilian friend homesick just hearing about it! Thanks for the great authentic recipe!
