Brazilian Feijoada

Posted on

We’ve posted about this before, but there’s a great, southern tradition of eating beans and greens on New Year’s Day to ensure good fortune in the coming year.

 

Ingredients for 6 portions:
1 pounds dry black beans, soaked overnight
2 quarts water, plus more as needed (add more whenever stew looks too dry)
1 bay leaf
2 smoked pork chops
12 oz linguica
8 oz Italian sausage
4 oz smoked bacon
3 oz dried beef
1 onion
6 cloves garlic
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
salt and pepper to taste
For the crumbs:
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp grated orange zest
2 tbsp chopped Italian parsley

Basic steps:
– Soak beans overnight, add to pot with bay leaf, beef jerky, and any bones
– Simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until beans are cooked, but very firm
– Add onion mixture and meats, and simmer for another hour, or until beans are very soft
– Add a splash of water at any point during the cooking if stew looks too dry
– Test and add salt near the end, depending on saltiness of meat
