Brazil rice is called arroz a brasileria and is typically made with just onion to go with the national dish called feijoada. Many times rice in Brazil is made with a couple of garlic cloves instead of onion, or a combination of the two.
It was a delicious side dish alongside the comforting dish of slow cooked pork and beans called feijoada.
