“Food and Wine Magazine, June /07 issue. This is a Steve Raichlen recipe, he uses a Brazilian lager but American stouts are okay. There is a 4 hour marinating time. I found this recipe to be very intriguing because it had many different ingredients. I especially liked the caraway seeds and the sweet paprika. Can't wait to try! Update: 09/24/07 - this is very, very good! Instead of an anise flavored beer (Brazilian beer) they used an American beer. I had this at Lima's house, whe is a Brazilian nurse here at the home and she had a small get together & served this. She doesn't like the Brazilian beer either.”
