Brazilian Foods for World Cup Party?
I'm getting together with just a few friends to watch USA play in World Cup on Monday. I thought it would be fun to fix some food that soccer fans might be eating in Brazil. I'm finding black bean recipes and flan recipes. Any suggestions?
Wood fired BBQ'd meat chunks (beef, lamb, chicken) on huge swords. It's the hamburger (signature dish) in Brazil. I didn't taste any marinade or sauce on them. I think well salted and then cooked.
You could use individual skewers to serve your guests. A black bean side sounds great. A green salad with a simple vinegar, salt and olive oil dressing.
Your flan sounds wonderful and you can make it ahead.
Here are a few of my Favorite Dishes
Acarajé - Brazilian Black Eyed Pea Fritters
Pastéis or Empanadas
Pão de Queijo - Cheese Breads
Feijão Tropeiro-Pinto Beans with, Scallions, Egg, and Bacon
Moqueca de Camarão- Shrimp Stew with Coconut Milk
Bolinhos de Bacalhau -Fried Salt Cod Cakes
Xinxim de Galinha- Chicken Stew with Dried Shrimp and Cashew Nuts
Crow? Just kidding. LOL
Check out the map of Brazil. Notice how many cities/towns/villages have Chinese names?
I'd go with Chinese take out.
