Brazilian feijoada is a traditional dish from Brazil. It is a stew made with black beans, pork, and beef. The beans are cooked together with the meat in a slow cooker for several hours until the flavors blend together to create an incredibly flavorful and hearty meal. Feijoada is often served with rice, collard greens, and farofa (toasted manioc flour). It is also traditionally accompanied by orange slices and hot sauce for extra flavor. Feijoada can be enjoyed as a main course or as part of a larger Brazilian feast.
Here's a simple recipe for making feijoada:

1 pound black beans
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
2 lbs pork shoulder, diced
1 lb beef or beef brisket, diced
8 ounces of smoked sausage or chorizo, sliced
4 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper, to taste
Rice, collard greens, and orange slices, for serving (optional)

Rinse and drain the black beans. Place them in a large pot with enough water to cover them and bring them to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the beans are tender about 1 hour.
In a separate pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and red bell pepper, and cook until the onion is translucent about 5 minutes.
Add the diced pork, beef, and sausage to the pan, and cook until browned, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the cooked black beans and chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
