My husband & I both enjoyed this very much. I followed the recipe except for using commercial orange juice, and made only half the recipe. The meat ended up marinating for an extra 24 hours, as we unexpectedly went out for dinner when I should have been cooking this dish. We found the meat to be very flavorful; we can't understand why anyone would have called it bland. I served it with tortillas, but would like to know what the Portuguese usually serve with it. I would caution anyone who makes this recipe to keep a close eye on the liquid levels. I gave the recipe only 4 stars because my stew beef, while edible after an hour or so of cooking, could have used another hour to get to the point of shredding. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks, John, for a recipe that we will keep making.
