Texas Day Brazil101 N Houston St, Fort Worth, TX 76102
The vast plains of the southern-most region of Brazil are called the Rio Grande do Sul. This area is cattle country. The Gauchos or South American cowboys would prepare a feast for their families by slow roasting the various meats over an open pit. There would be seasonal greens and vegtable dishes using native ingredients. Rice and beans were an important part of this meal. The roasted meats were brought around to each family, offering the best of that gaucho's herd. They carved meats at each table in a show of skill and festive gift giving. At Texas de Brazil they continue that tradition of offering a buffet of the bounty of each season along with rotisserie-roasted meats and sides.
