How To Prepare Brazilian Mocotó

Mocotó is a popular Brazilian stew made from cow’s feet, beans, and various vegetables. The name of the dish stems from the Kimbundu word mbokotó. Nutritious and inexpensive, the stew was originally made by slaves who used cuts of meat that were thrown away by the landowners.

Mocotó is especially popular in the southern and northeastern parts of Brazil.

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 Cow’s Foot

2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

2 Onions

2 Carrots

1 Red Pepper

2 Garlic Cloves

1 Can of White Beans

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE BRAZILIAN Mocotó

Start by soaking the cow’s foot in cold water for 30 minutes before cooking.

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.

Chop the onions, carrots, and red pepper, and add them to the pot.

Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are lightly browned.

Add the garlic and sauté for an additional minute.

Add the cow’s foot and sauté for another 5 minutes.

Add the canned tomatoes and white beans, then season with salt, pepper, and oregano.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Once the cow’s foot is tender and falling off the bone, remove it from the pot and shred it with a fork.

Return the shredded meat to the pot, stir to combine, and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Serve the Mocotó with steamed rice or mashed potatoes.
