Beef is the main focus of Brazilian Style BBQ. If you've ever been to a Brazilian BBQ restaurant, you know that you can expect non-stop waves of beef coming your way in different shapes and cuts.
To be accurate, Brazilian barbeque is really closer to being what we know as grilling. It does not usually call for a tomatoe or vinegar-based barbeque sauce like most barbeque in the US. Instead, marinades and sauces full of citrus and other flavors are the norm.
You are sure to love these Brazilian barbeque recipes. They are spicy and flavorful in the Brazilian tradition of big beef and bold flavors.
