This is a typical Brazilian recipe that originated in the southern Brazil when men would cross the plains in wagons carrying goods back and forth. Because they had no access to fresh foods, they would have made this rice dish with dried beef and pepperoni-style sausages, cooking it over their campfire during these long trips.

IngredientsServes: 6

  • 2 tablespoons lard or oil
  • 1.2kg dried beef
  • 200g pepperoni sausage, sliced
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 600g white rice
  • 1.5L boiling water of beef stock, about 6 mugs
  • 2 peeled tomatoes, chopped
  • 30g mix of chopped parsley and spring onions

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:30min ›Extra time:8hr soaking › Ready in:8hr45min

  1. Soak the dried beef in water overnight, changing the water a couple of times.
  2. Drain beef and place in a pot, Cover with fresh water and boil for 5 minutes. Drain and slice into small pieces.
  3. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; stir in chopped beef, sliced sausage, chopped onion and garlic. Add rice and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring well.
  4. Pour in boiling water or stock; cover and let it simmer until liquid is absorbed and rice has cooked. Check every so often, adding more water or stock if necessary during cooking.
  5. Stir in chopped tomatoes and herbs; serve hot.


The original dish uses salted dried beef, commonly found in Brazil, which requires soaking overnight. You could use beef jerky instead in which case you would not need to soak it. You may need to season to taste with salt.
