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.


1 pound dried black beans
Water; enough to cover beans
6 cups Water
1 pound boneless ham; cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 pound boneless pork loin; cut into 3/4-inch cubes
3/4 pound hot Italian sausage; sliced into 1-inch pieces
3/4 pound smoked sausage; sliced into 1-inch pieces
1 pint cherry tomatoes; stemmed
1 onion; peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
6 cloves garlic; crushed
1/2 teaspoon orange zest; grated

Original recipe makes 12



Cover beans with water and soak overnight. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large Dutch oven, or kettle with lid, combine drained beans, the 6 cups water and all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, skimming if necessary. Cover and transfer to oven. Bake 1 1/2 hours, remove cover and bake another 30 minutes; stirring occasionally. Serve immediately or cool slightly, cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove any fat from surface; reheat slowly on stovetop over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
