Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I cook feijoada from scratch using my mother-in-law's recipe (she is Brasilian). I cook feijoada from scratch using my mother-in-law's recipe (she is Brasilian). While I didn't find this dish to taste like the feijoada I prepare it was still good. I left out the green peppers and added a bay leaf. I'll make this dish again when I don't have enough time to make traditional feijoada but this recipe won't replace the one passed on from my husband's family.
