The beauty of cooking is that it can bring delicious food across cultures, places and cuisines right to your table. And that’s especially so with Zoe Bingley-Pullin’s Brazilian Hot Beef recipe.

This time, Zoe’s recipe is taking you to Brazil, with a sizzling South American-inspired dish of lean, grass-fed beef marinated in punchy spices and tenderised with the sweetened taste of coconut milk and tomato paste, as well as some curry powder and ginger to bring the heat.

The lean grass-fed beef is also rich in protein, vitamins and minerals making it a healthy option for your weekend grilling while the sautéed vegetables add a hit of caramelised goodness to pull the dish altogether.
