About this recipe: A very traditional Brazilian stew made of black beans, sausage and all the tasty bits of pork. For a traditional Brazilian spread, serve with white rice and collard greens.
To serve, the traditional Brazilian way is with collard greens. You can look for them in Caribbean markets, but if unavailable try kale instead.
The special cuts of meat should be available if you order from a good butcher ahead of time.
The dried beef called for in this recipe is called charque or carne seca in Brazil. It can be hard to find in the UK, and can be omitted if necessary.
