"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."

Let me preface my review by stating I've never heard of this dish before, so I have no basis for comparison as far as "authentic" goes. I stumbled across it and thought it looked like an interesting ground beef recipe & decided to give it a try! As I am the first reviewer, I really tried to not alter it. However, I detest celery, so I did leave that out. I also was forced to use dried as opposed to fresh parsley. Everything else was the same (ok ok, I couldn't resist adding more garlic, as usual). It's pretty good! It was a little bland for my tastes, but that could have been partially due to no celery and the dried parsley. I also used a sweeter red wine and I'm not sure how a merlot or cab would affect the flavor. I added some sea salt when I served it and that was a nice touch. Thanks, Woman Whisking, for a different way to use ground beef!
I did not like it that well. It seems like it was missing something.
This is extremely Good! I made it as written except I added salt and pepper.I served it with white rice and yellow rice.I liked the yellow rice better.This dish has a very South American flavor to it.My 17 year old also loved it. She said it tasted like pepper steak.This recipe makes 8 generous servings if you use 2 cups of rice.
We all LOVED this dish! With the exception of adding additional salt,pepper, and garlic powder (which I do on almost all recipes) I followed to a "T". My 8 year old ate 2 huge bowls and I'm too embarrassed to say how much my husband ate. Thanks for the recipe! I will definitely be making this one again.
Was awesome! Made plain ol boring ol ground beef into a fancy dinner. The flavors were so deep, it tasted like something I would be ordering, not making. I loved this dish. Oh, and ps, leftovers were just as good.
I really liked this. it was different than what I imagined it would be, but in a good way. I made these changes: cut recipe in half (4 servings), 2tbsp dry parsley in place of 1/2c fresh, whole can of diced tomato rather than half, added some cinnamon, no green pepper, beef stock in place of red wine, and I cooked the rice with it all after it was done simmering... to do this I added 3/4c rice and remaining 1.25c beef broth, stirred it together, then cooked until rice was done. I like to mix rice in with things like this because it lets it soak up the flavors.
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.
