Feijoada Fascination

Ever since my trip to Miami, I have been obsessed with cuban sandwiches and Feijoada.  Now, it isn't   a typical Miami dish, but Feijoada was sometime I fell into while eating at the Lincoln Road Mall in Miami Beach.  You can't get more touristy than eating at Sushi Samba in Miami Beach, however it was a fantastic choice.  I didn't even know how to pronounce it, but reading the description was enough get me salivating and wanting.

When I returned back to NY, I could easily head to the Sushi Samba location in NYC but I wanted to see if I could make it on my own.  It is a lot easier than you think.  It may not look incredibly pleasing, but taste it and you will be pleased.

What you'll need to make my version of Feijoada is simple:

- 1 can black beans
- 8 Sweet Italian Sausages
- Garlic
- Bay leaves
- Sofrito
- Lemon Juice
- Sour Orange

- Parsley or Cilantro

Mix ingredients together and let "stew" for about 2 hours on medium to low heat.  Add a side of rice, a slice of orange, and greens of your choice and enjoy.
