I have my mother in law's handwritten recipe. They were from the island of Treceira. She had a heavy bottom pan, I use a Lecruset dutch oven. She seasoned hers with salt and cumin and pepper. Rubbed a good deal of Crisco on the dutch oven. Seasoned pork butt or shoulder cut into chunks. I've used meaty country style spare ribs also. Pour a little homemade Portuguese wine over and leave on counter for one hour. Cook low and slow in the oven. I actually like to put just a dash of cinnamon on mine.

I am surprised to see this comment left only a day ago. Came here looking for a recipe to surprise my Portuguese family with at Easter this weekend and torresemos were always our favorite. My grandma Lucille was also a Souza coincidentally and I came here looking for something like her recipe. Going to add the cumin and cinnamon like you suggested because I distinctively remember that seasoning in her dish. Thx!
