 Buraco Quente Sanduíche/Minced Meat Sandwich

‘Buraco quente’ is a small French roll filled with a meaty filling and cheese. These are very popular everywhere in Brazil. Some vendors use dif erent meats such as pork and chicken instead of using the traditional minced beef version.

Makes 8 sandwiches


8 small French baguettes

500g of lean minced beef

1 large onion chopped

2 cloves of garlic chopped

4 tomatoes chopped

3 tablespoons of parsley

3 spring onions chopped

½ green bell pepper diced

400g buffalo mozzarella cheese

1 beef stock cube

Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium sized saucepan heat a little oil to a medium heat and add the garlic, onions and green pepper and fry for 3 minutes. Add the minced meat and continue to fry on a high heat for a more few minutes until browned. Mix in the stock cube, the chopped tomatoes, herbs and spring onions. Continue cooking on a medium heat for about 7 minutes or until the mince meat mixture is cooked to your liking. Two minutes before taking the mixture off the heat add some buffalo mozzarella cheese and allow it to start melting into the mixture. Your filling is done.

Open the top of the baguette and press down as far to the bottom as you can, wriggling your finger to make a large enough cavity to allow plenty of the mince meat mixture to fill it. Now just add your filling and a slice of buffalo mozzarella cheese, and serve.
