Brazilian Barbeque - Beef and Some More Beef

Brazilian Barbeque is as deep of a tradition in Brazil as barbeque in general is in many parts of the United States. Brazil has been doing barbeque, and doing it well, for a long time.

Beef is the main focus of Brazilian Style BBQ. If you've ever been to a Brazilian BBQ restaurant, you know that you can expect non-stop waves of beef coming your way in different shapes and cuts.

To be accurate, Brazilian barbeque is really closer to being what we know as grilling. It does not usually call for a tomatoe or vinegar-based barbeque sauce like most barbeque in the US. Instead, marinades and sauces full of citrus and other flavors are the norm.

You are sure to love these Brazilian barbeque recipes. They are spicy and flavorful in the Brazilian tradition of big beef and bold flavors.

Brazilian Barbecued Sirloin Steaks

4 sirloin steaks, 1 1/2" thick
1/2 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
1/3 cup dry red wine
1 small onion finely chopped
4 finely chopped garlic cloves
2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

5 jalapeno peppers - (to 10)1 teaspoon salt
1 small diced onion
4 large chopped garlic cloves
Juice of 3 limes
1 Tablespoon finely chopped Italian parsely


For the Chile Lime Sauce, combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and blend until a paste is formed.
Place the steaks in a single layer in a large glass baking dish. Stir the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and pour over the steaks, turning to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate, turning every couple of hours, for at least 4 hours.

Remove the steaks from the marinade, shaking off any excess, and grill over a medium fire, 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer to a platter and let the steaks rest, loosely covered with foil. Serve with the chile lime sauce.

This recipe serves four.


1 hour to serve 4 to 6
4 beef tenderloin steaks, about 1 inch thick
3 teaspoons salt
juice of 2 lemons
1/4 teaspoon pepper
dash of dried hot pepper
1 large chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Marinate the beef overnight in the juice of 1 lemon, salt and garlic. The next day: grill until until medium-rare (about 5 minutes to a side). Serve with a sauce made from the remaining lemon, the hot pepper, onion and cilantro.
