Feijoada is the most famous Brazilian dish. It is made of black beans with different kinds of meat such as ribs, pork, sausage, dried beef, and bacon.

It is served with rice and collard greens prepared with olive oil, orange, and fanofa, which is made of garlic, onion, butter, eggs, and manioc (a special flour).

This dish is usually served at lunchtime because it is a little heavy and you need time to digest it, even if you eat the orange to help your digestion.

Feijoada originated from the leftovers that upper class people in the past left for their slaves, but it has become sophisticated.

It is a delicious dish, and if you go to Brazil, I recommend that you try it.
