May 30: Feijoada- Brazilian Black Bean Soup


This recipe is straight from Brazil. My brother-in-law, Shannon, served a mission there and I assume he brought home this recipe. My sister Robyn is a pro at making it. It is so delicious!


Sort 1 lb black beans. Soak overnight.
Next morning:
Bring the beans to boil in water about 2” above beans.
Reduce heat to low.

Add:
1 chopped onion                                                
¼ tsp garlic powder                                          
Small salt pork   
Ham hock
1 bay leaf                                               
Cook on low heat for several hours.
About 2 to 3 hours before serving, add desired meats or more water, if necessary.
Suggested meats: Italian and/or German sausage links
                      Hillshire Farms sausage cut in 2” sections
                      Unsliced bacon
