A Churrascaria (Chu-Ra-Sca-Ria) is a Brazilian barbecue house that specializes in amazing, delicious, savory varieties of grilled meats. Chicken, steak, pork, lamb; you name it, it’s served (who ordered the Chicken Hearts?). Each dish is cut off the skewer in front of you directly on to your plate. Halfway through the meal, I joked I didn’t understand why we weren’t staying IN the churrascaria. No, seriously. They could have just set me up a bed by a table so I could eat and fall asleep at my leisure – literal #foodporn heaven.
After this experience, I’ve decided no one can work a grill like a Brazilian can. Period. Find out why below and watch as I visit my first Churrascaria in Brazil and get a hands on lesson on cutting meat (which I’m apparently terrible at). Special thanks to Bufalo Branco and Loumar Turismo in Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná, Brazil for this amazing feast!
