Feijoada is one of Portugal’s greatest exports – this tasty dish of beans with beef and pork can be found in Macau, Angola, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Goa and Brazil. To Brazilians, Feijoada is a national dish.
But the bean stew began in the Trás-os-Montes region, the Northeastern province known for its hilly, wild landscapes.
The original Feijoada à Transmontana is the genesis for all other feijoadas that followed. It is a balance of sausages, less desirable meats, red beans (always) and cabbage. Next time you are in Bragança or Mogadouro, try the real thing!
