This, the Brazilian national dish, feijoada (FAY-zwah-da) is a glorious black bean stew starring several smoked and seasoned pork products like ham and sausage and also fresh pork loin. It serves a crowd; simmers effortlessly in the oven, and any leftovers reheat beautifully.
Serve with a big tossed green salad and crusty French bread.
