Portuguese Blade Meat

Portuguese Blade Meat

Anyone from the New England area or of Portuguese heritage may be familiar with Blade Meat. It's a staple of Portuguese cooking and is probably one of my favorite sandwiches in the world.



  1. Add seasoning mix with 1½ cups of water, stir and mix till well blended.
  2. Add pork and marinate for 12-24 hours.
  3. Once meat is marinated, add pork with marinate to your crockpot.
  4. Cover slow-cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.

Serve: on a crusty Portuguese roll. Add roll with a generous portion of meat make sure to spoon on a little juice from the crock pot for added moisture and flavor. Or Make it a Blade Meat Plate with rice and potatoes.
