Cuttlefish Bean Stew, ( Portuguese name: Feijoada de Choco ) is commonly prepared in Portugal, but in Brazil and Africa as well - due to the interchange of cultures between the continents during the Age of Discoveries in the 16th Century.
In Portugal, it is traditionally made with Pork meat - but there are recipes that substitute it for mollusks or seafood. It is the perfect Sunday Lunch dish, especially on a cold winter day.
