You Call That a Skewer? This is a Skewer!

A few months ago, my friends and I embarked on a magical meat journey at Espetus, a Brazilian steakhouse (churrascaria). Taking a cue from Brazilian Gauchos - who would skewer meats and roast them over a large fire pit - churrascarias serve their clientele barbecued meat directly off of large sword-like skewers. In most places, the servers continue bringing meats until you've had your fill and in our case, we had a wheel that displayed green for more or red for stop. While there we ate at least seven different kinds of meat, including a delicious bbq'd tri-tip roast called picanha. If you can't find a churrascaria near you, I've got a recipe you can try at home, to check it out,

Ooohhh...love the Brazilian steakhouses. We have...I think...three in Atlanta. It's a carnivore's dream come true. I think the best is Fogo de Chao, YUMMY!!!

No Brazilian or Argentine steakhouses here, sadly. I'll just have to pretend my husband is a handsome gaucho and I'm Gisele - and make this at home! (we've got really good imagination!) LOL.
