More recipes!

More time spent with Luciano and Geneci meant more delicious food and family time! Here are a few more of my favorites:

Brazilian Chicken Fried Steak

Slice beef into thin steaks Add salt, lots of crushed garlic, and a few splashes of vinegar. Lets it for a few minutes. Prepare two plates, one with a few eggs, beaten, and one with farinha (flour). Dip the steaks into the flour, then the egg, then flour again. Fry in hot oil on the stove. Yummmmmmm! We ate our with lots of beans, rice, and ketchup.

Fresh Beet Salad

Geneci makes this colorful side dish that is delicious and healthy too. Just grate one beet, and add salt and vinegar. I was surprised at how much I liked this. You could probably add some sugar too, if desired.

side note: brazilians don't eat a lot of fresh veggies, just pickled in vinegar

German Cuca Bread
I was really excited for this recipe! I want to make it for Zacky when he gets home. This recipe is for pineapple cuca, but you can substitute whatever you want for the topping (pineapple, orange, apple, guava and cheese, and chocolate are some popular varieties)

2 eggs
100g margarine
2 c sugar
1.5 c milk, warm
Spoonful of yeast
1 spoonful lime zest
4-5 cups flour

1 med. pineapple, chopped
2 c sugar
1 c water
Tb amido de milho

Farofa (sugar crystal topping)
6 spoons sugar
6 spoons flour
3 spoons margarine

Beat eggs with the sugar and margarine. Add a little milk, a little flour, a little milk, a little flour until its all mixed. Pour in yeast and zest, mix. Put dough in big casserole type dish. Put on the topping (instructions below) and farofa. Bake in the oven for 40 min at 180 Celsius.

To make the topping: add pineapple, sugar, water to a saucepan and cook on med heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Add the amido de milho and cook for 2 more minutes. Let it cool before adding it to the dough so as not to kill the yeast.

Hope this turns out!
