This is a sauce seen commonly at many Brazilian churrascarias and restaurants. It is most often used as a condiment for grilled meats and sometimes as the topping for what Brazilians call garlic bread. Good stuff. Serve with grilled chicken or steak. Good with pasta, too.

I ate it on pasta, the first time I added mushrooms sauté in lemon juice and the second time I put broccoli instead. Both times tasted amazing. It's definitely my favorite pasta sauce. The sauce came out beige instead of white though. Read More
