FEIJOADA (Meats and Beans Stew)

2 lbs dried black beans

1 bay leaf

1 lb pork loin cut into large cubes


1 lb salt pork

1 cup lemon juice

2 lbs Portuguese sausage

3 tbsp green onions, finely sliced

1 lb smoked ham hocks

3 tbsp parsley, cut up

0.1 lb fat bacon (whole)

1 red pepper, cut up very fine

0.5 lb smoked pork ribs

3 tbsp white onion

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tomato, diced, peeled, seeded

3 cloves of garlic, smashed

black pepper to taste

The day before
1) soak the black beans with large amount of water and leave overnite.
2) soak the salt pork overnite; change water 2-3 times
3) Prepare serving sauce by mixing up all ingredients and keep in refrigerator
Next Day
Cook the black beans (you can use a pressure cooker for 20 minutes, if you want) after draining the water and adding fresh water to cover them completely by about 1 inch. If using a normal pan, they should cook about 1 hour, 1.5 hour. Depends on the beans, you should try and see that they are getting soft
In two separate large pans, cook meats in salted water.
Keep the black beans in low heat, as meats are almost cooked, add them to the black beans.
When all the meats are incorporated into black beans, keep the pot in low heat, and proceed to make the "cooking spice"
Heat oil, add garlic, sautee until golden, add to black beans with salt and bay leaf
Cook the whole thing for 1.5-2 hours in low heat, check the salt, add more water if it gets too thick. One trick that helps to have a real nice, creamy feijoada: get one laddle of the black beans when they have been cooking for about 1 hour with the meats, and process in a blender or food processor.
Transfer back to the pot, and cook for the remaining time.
Get the sauce out of the refrigerator, when it is time to serve, add just the liquid of the feijoada to it.
Feijoada is traditionally served over white rice. Add the sauce on top of it.
