“My Carnivore Husband Loves this!!! This is a dish that makes me proud to be Portuguese!!! I combined a recipe I found on this website with dishes I have had from my culture and came up with this. I always serve it over Basmatti Rice and everyone loves it. I have brought it to many potlucks and I always get asked the recipe”
