I make this all of the time I prefer using good quality beef or sometimes half beef and half pork and I make about 6 lb when I do. It's a favorite with my friends here in Florida but my favorite is using Portuguese Old spice and Pimenta Moída (Crushed Hot Red Peppers) etc

I'm so glad to have found this site. My Grandparents were Portuguese and made a lot of this food, but left no recipes. Thank you so much!
