Brazil is the stage for all the world in this year's World Cup, bringing the spotlight to the nation's vibrant culture and delicious cuisine. While rice and beans, pasta dishes and snacks like pão de queijo (cheese buns) are delicious staples, there's one national export that's become a worldwide love affair: churrasco, or Brazilian barbecue.
Churrasco is the stuff meat lovers' dreams are made of. A variety of meat, from prime cuts of beef to sausages, are skewered and roasted over embers of charcoal. The beauty of a churrascaria, a restaurant specializing in churrasco, is that there are so many options to choose from and the waiters will slice and serve straight from the skewered roast to your plate. Brazilian barbecue has become so popular that you can find restaurants in major cities around the world.
