Beef Portuguese Style
Last summer, in a village just outside Lisbon, I had unforgettable garlicky Portuguese style beef. I am not exaggerating when I say that I have dreamt about that beef dish since! I don’t know about you, but something about travelling to other countries really inspires me when it comes to trying new dishes. When I travel, I always bring a notebook so I can jot down recipes and memories of delicious meals.
This is one of the recipes I brought back from my adventures in Portugal. It’s quick and easy and full of flavour thanks to a red wine and garlic marinade which becomes the sauce. You simply coat the beef in a marinade made from red wine, water, garlic, chili paste, salt and pepper and then fry the steaks in oil. It really is special!
