Brazilian Feijoada…a little culinary history!
The name of this Brazilian dish comes from the Portuguese word “feijao,” meaning “bean.” Essentially it’s a black bean stew with pork, similar to a cassoulet. When the Portuguese arrived in South America and Brazil, white beans to make traditional european-style dishes were not available; so recipes were adapted to use the local black beans, one of Brazil’s main crops. It is usually eaten as a hearty lunch and is particularly popular during Carnival before the fast during Lent. At Cactus, we serve ours “con arroz,” with rice!
