Brazilian Garlic Sauce (Molho de Alho)

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until the garlic is a light brown, about 2 minutes. Mix in flour; cook and stir until the garlic mixture is a light blonde color, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in milk a little at a time until combined, 1 to 2 minutes. Add mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and oregano; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and evenly warmed, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Add the milk a little at a time to avoid lumps forming in the sauce.

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...

I màde it exactly like the recipe said. Then i altered it.i doubled the spices and added chicken and tomato basil base. It was perfect i topped chicken and mashed potatos with it.

Bold garlic flavor. This will go good on anything including vegetables.
