My husband is from Fall River, MA (high Portuguese population) and we've been searching for soups and stews for him to take to work. He is a very picky eater and he LOVES this. "A keeper" he said. I am not fond of canned veggies, so I used fresh green beans added at the 20 minute mark, then cooked for another 20 minutes and it came out wonderful. Next time we might try adding some cabbage. :)
This dish is best with fresh green beans! When I make it, I replace the tomato sauce with a can of beer. Mine is not really like a stew, but a hearty dish with enough broth to dip some nice crusty bread....
like my grandmother use to make excellent! ive missed it till now
This was one of those recipes that my family would make when I was growing up but they would never share the recipe! I substituted kale and fava beans for the green beans and it came out very good. The leftovers were even better.
I thought this was a good base to start from . I partially cooked pieces of chicken then made the soup in the same pot , the chicken in this recipe added alot of flavor . I did not use green beans , I'm not a fan of canned veggies instead I added frozen kale at 50 cents a box you can't go wrong. I believe authentic Portuguese Chouricco Stew has kale not green beans...
I used spinach instead of green beans. My family LOVED this recipe!!!
Excellent! I loved it.
A perfect stew that will be a staple in our house! Thank you for sharing!
