Slow Cooker Brazilian Feijoada

I am sharing  my recipe for Brazilian feijoada, which  is the national dish. The bean dishes in South America  always seem to me to be a big production. And I just love that.

No worrying  about  what to serve with it.  As it is all  there. The  feijoada  is  accompanied by rice,  healthy greens,  citrus fruit, olives, eggs and farofa, which is a toasted crumb  made from cassava flour. I use a packaged mix. You  should  be  able  to get that at any Latin grocer.

From  there, the only  thing  missing is  some wine. I would suggest  a nice red Argentinean Malbec. (I  know  some of  my friends and followers are oenophiles and dig having a glass with  supper). And who can  argue with  that?

Well maybe kids, but they should stick  to red Kool-aid instead.
