O stew do Português de Dorrie é delicioso! E, é realmente fácil fazer!

Roughly translated, it means “Dorrie’s Portuguese Stew is delicious! And, so easy to make!” And it is. Both.

I really don’t remember how long ago Dorrie gave me this recipe. She’s made it for me a couple of times over the years, and I’ve made it a few times, myself. (Hers is always better, but I think that has to do with the amount of love she adds to each pot!) It’s just a few ingredients, but it’s amazingly wonderful! It’s a rich stew of pork, linquica, peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Simple, but with a powerful flavor! I actually made it this morning, let it simmer for a while, and then reheated it for dinner. Almost like making it the day before, cuz it always tastes better the next day! Here’s the recipe…

It’s one of those recipes that just fills the house with wonderful smells and sends the olfactory system into overdrive. I was actually in the kitchen every three minutes “tasting” it – just because I could!


I then decided I needed some good bread to go with it – and was too lazy to go to the store. So I made 2 loaves of Portuguese Bread. A recipe I found many moons ago. The bread has a great crusty crust and a really light interior. GREAT for dunking and sopping up the sauce from the stew! And great for sandwiches!

The nice thing about dinner tonight, is there’s leftovers for lunch tomorrow! And with a loaf and a half of bread, we’re sitting pretty!

A vida é boa!
