“Wife received this recipe from... her brother's friend's girlfriend who lived in Brazil. The origin sounds longer when you’re talking and seems way more confusing. When I was first introduced to this recipe I was amazed at something so simple tasting so good. Since we received this recipe we have cooked it several times per week and have convinced our 10yr and 8yr old to eat it as well. I do suggest on the last three items you add to your desired taste, we like it spicy and only "real" amounts of salt on the plate as each person in our family has a different "version" of too salty or too hot.”
