"This is an authentic Brazilian ground beef and vegetable recipe which I tweaked to my family's liking. Who says ground beef has to be boring! Serve over hot white rice."

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onions and garlic, and cook until the onions have caramelized to a deep, golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir frequently as the onions cook. Meanwhile, place the ground beef, celery, bell pepper, eggs, tomatoes, and parsley into a mixing bowl; mix until evenly combined.
  2. Add the meat mixture into the caramelized onions, and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in the red wine and red pepper flakes. Continue simmering, covered, until the liquid evaporates, about 1 hour.

This was amazing! I cut it in half, used the whole can of tomatoes and left out the celery. Served over yellow rice. Hubby couldn't get enough! Try it with a few splashes of hot sauce, yum!

whole family enjoyed this dish. I topped it with parm.

Very good, but very bland. I added salt, black peeper and two teaspoons of sugar. I served it over whit rice and thought of adding a can of tomato soup and serving it over elbow noodles. That mi...

This is an all time family favorite!! It's delicious and easy! I add yellow rice to the pot about 25 min before I'm ready to eat and let it absorb the liquid. This is a great recipe!!
