Miriam Hawkins


3 strips raw bacon
2 onions
3 cloves garlic (or 1 tsp. garlic powder)
1 lb. smoked sausage (I like linguica)
1 lb. boneless beef (any cut)
1 can (14-oz) stewed tomatoes
1 cup hot water
1 tbsp. yellow mustard
4 c. canned black beans
salt and pepper

1. Cut the bacon strips into big pieces. Fry them in a large pot over medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring often.
2. Turn the heat down to medium.
3. Cut the onion in half. Peel off the skin and the outer layer. Chop both halves into small pieces.
4. Peel the cloves of garlic. Chop them into small pieces.
5. Add the onions and garlic to the bacon in the pot. Stir until the onions are soft, about 3 minutes.
6. Cut the sausage and beef into 1-inch pieces. Add them to the onions and garlic.
7. Cook until the meat is brown on all sides.
8. Add the stewed tomatoes (with juice), hot water, yellow mustard, and some salt and pepper. Turn the heat down to simmer. Cover the pot.
9. Cook for about 45 minutes, stirring often. If it looks too thick, add more water, cup at a time. Add the black beans (with liquid).
10. Cover the pot, and cook for 10 more minutes.

*If easily accessible, add some fresh chopped cilantro at the very end. It adds some great authentic taste and smell.

Personal Notes:
As a missionary in Brazil, feijoada (pronounced fay-show-ah-dah) was a frequently served dish. It is usually served with rice and is so delicious!! If you are feeling daring, try slicing some bananas into your feijoada on your plate and eat them together... it is super tasty!!
