This recipe is found in my cookbook "A Pinch, A Dash and A Pocketful Of Cash" by Anna French of course!! Which you can find on and !!! This is a typical side dish in Rio, Brasil. We do a lot of BBQ's on the weekends, in reality everything in Rio is a reason to heat up the grill!!!! I had to bring this same tradition here to Miami. My fiance had never eaten this before however, now he is crazy about. So this is a must in our household, regardless of BBQ or not!!
