Linguica and Green Beans

This recipe is well known to Portuguese families. Linguica is a spicy Portuguese sausage and can be found in specialty markets, some chain markets or online at such places as Gaspars.com. TIP: I like to add 1 large can of crushed tomatoes with puree instead of the tomato sauce. This makes it more like a stew and thicker.

    The recipe calls for allspice. Is that Portuguese allspice? It's a savory spice, not the sweet spice used in baking. In Fall River, MA where I am from, allspice in a Portuguese recipe usually refers to the savory spice sold in Portuguese markets.

    Quite a tasty dish! We cut the amount of beans to 3/4 lb, as it seemed to be enough. Bean lovers may want more, but it was perfect for us. We substituted Chorizo for Linguica, as we had it on hand. I'm not sure how much of a difference that made, but it was still great. Will make again.

    This recipe was a big hit at a party the other night. It is so authentic and reminds me of my links to Fall River, MA growing up in the Portuguese community. This is as good as it gets! Absolutely fabulous and so easy to put together and cook. Elisabeth

    What wonderful flavor. My first time using linguica and it was wonderful. I didn;t know what to expect with spiciness, so I left out the red pepper as I was sharing this with my Father who is not a heat lover. Next time I will add it. I was worried about the allspice but no need to be. My was very liquidy, so I did have to simmer about 30 minutes without the cover to thicken it up. I will be buying linguica just to make this from now on...this dish has a fresh flavor that begs you to eat more.

    This recipe turned out great. I brought it to my son't multi-cultural dinenr at his school and many people commented that they liked it. I can't wait to share it with my mom and good cooking buddy. I also can't wait to try the variation that someone submitted.
