    OK, I love, LOVE watching your videos. I just have some problems with this (my favorite dish, having grown up in Brazil for a good part of my childhood). Maybe it's just me, but here I go:
    Add the meat, bones, and beans all together. Yes, you can sear the onions and garlic first, but the beans absorb the flavors while cooking, and cook the meats (I like to use broth, but water is OK). Also, soup bones, and other parts of the pork/beef are very traditional. Sausage and bacon is fine though (the pork chop is a bit American, lol). Also, the "cassava flour": it's called Farofa. It's made from manioc (aka yucca), and has more of a consistency of corn meal. If you're lucky enough to live in a city where you can get Linguiça, you should be able to find farofa (or at a Brazillian store). **Don't add anything to the farofa (butter to brown is all)!** The oranges are just like a delicious garnish. Also, should add a tiny bit of cumin, and don't forget the salt (fresh cilantro too). DON'T MASH THE BEANS!!! The liquid shouldn't be that thick. In fact, it is tradition to serve shots (yes, like liquor) of the liquid like an appetizer. It's SO good! Feijoada usually served over rice, which is seared in a pan with onions and butter before cooking. Also, generally served with collards which are cooked slivered as well (not spicy), just buttery and savory.

    Congrats. I love how you replace carne de sol with beef jerky. It makes total sense.

    Hi chef!! As a Brazilian it's so happy to see our favorite dish abroad. So, I just would like to say that in Brazil we eat the Feijoada with a "pepper/hot sauce" – we use the beens water (after cooking) and add tomate onions and chopped pepper (known as "dedo de moça" Peppers in Brazil) and breaded banana.

    Forgot an important element: CAIPIRINHA! Caipirinha (mash limes, sugar, add cachaça and ice, that's it) is the official drink for a Feijoada. Don't even consider drinking beer, for it is likely (as we say in Brazil) you will have to roll away from the table after you finish eating. If you can't find cachaça, rum will do fine, just have to change the name of the drink to "Caipiríssima"

    Brazilians usually put a few bay leaves when cooking the beans, and this is kind of important. And here is a tip for the 'farofa' 4:20 ; sautée three onions on lots of olive oil, make it quite slushy, and add enough tosted manioc flour keeping it moist. Some people add eggs, or bacon, but it is overkill. And I am sorry to say you left out two essential ingredients for a genuine, delicious Feijoada. #1: wrap several kale leaves very tightly, rolling them like a cigar, and slice them as thinly as possible, the pros scrape the edges with a very sharp knife making it angel hair thin. Sautée with garlic and O.O. #2 for me this is the ingredient that makes a Feijoada a Feijoada: Oranges! Peel and cut seedless oranges in discs or cubes, and serve them with the rest of the Feijoada. The tanginess of the oranges are essential to balance all the pork, and I highly recomend using it. Feijoada is my favorite meal, and I usually say that a Feijoada without oranges is just rice and beans with pork. Do try it with oranges to experience the real thing.

    Very good chef John! I suggest trying some farofa with yucca flour as well, if you can find it. It is not to be missed. And you can speed up the process with a pressure cooker. Make yourself a caipirinha and you have the taste of Brazilian gathering.

    That is a great tradition in the United States. I happened to come from the United States of America, but that is a dish from the United States of Brazil. We're all Americans. We speak American, don't we?

    Finally you didn’t add extra salt. The bacon and sausage give it enough salt.
