  • 4 Eggs


1. Dice beef very finely about 1/4"

2. Brown beef in oil, it will give out liquid, wait until it dries and keep

to change color, stirring a few times.

4. Add chopped tomatoes and cook until they become a paste. Season with
salt and pepper. Add bay.

5. Add 1/2 a cup water and simmer until almost dry and add water again.
(1/2 cup), remove bayleaf

6. Keep cooking in this manner, adding 1/2 cups water until beef is very
tender (about 1 1/2 hour

7. Poach eggs

8. Serve in individual dishes topped with a poached egg, with rice and
"farofa " on the side

Farofa: 1/2 to 1 cup butter 2 cups yucca or manioc flour* 1/2 an onion,
chopped salt

Cook onion in butter until it begins to change color. Add flour and stir 5

If you can't find the yucca flour, you may substitute it by ground cream
crackers, not the same but....

NOTES : This is a very simple but typical dish from Rio de Janeiro
Sometimes I add diced potatoes to the beef half an hour before the end of
cooking, in which case I omit the farofa and the egg and call it
