It is quite possible that each Brazilian family has its own special recipe to prepare pork loin. Seasonings and side dishes can vary greatly, but the traditional technique involves braising or roasting the meat in one piece – which may be covered with sliced bacon, to prevent dryness. Pork loin with beer, with honey and mustard, with orange sauce, stuffed with pineapple, or farofa (seasoned manioc flour) are popular recipes.
