Traditionally eaten on Wednesday's and Saturday's throughout Brazil with white rice and oranges (amongst other things), this special and rich meaty slow cooked stew has a depth of flavour using simple ingredients that could bring 'ooohs' and 'aaaahh's' from across the Atlantic I'm sure. I save my version for special occasions when I want a really hearty shared meal and I love the way the beans melt into the sauce lending their luxurious almost creamy texture to the finished dish. Originally this was made by African slaves using fatty offal scraps and as tasty as it was (I've tried this version and it is pretty good!) many people nowadays, including myself, make it lighter and use better quality meats. The Orange and Coriander salad is not compulsory but comes very highly recommended. Absolutely Outstanding.
