I’m going to tell you my lovely days in Lisbon, which was the capital of an empire. All lisboa remembers his glorious padado. Like when sailors came out to discover and conquer lands on the other side of the world.
You see old faded tiles on their facades. Peeling walls and stone streets lined with old trams. No great luxuries or European stores are sought in this city, although they do. What is sought and found is a melancholic beauty, art, imperfection and the charm of the people.
Portugal is fashionable.
Last year it was awarded for the second time as Europe’s Best Destination in the World Travel Awards (WTA) They are prizes of the world tourism industry. And Lisbon turned out to be the Best City in Europe and the Best Cruise Port.

How to prepare French Onion Soup
Onion French Soup: a exquisite, traditional and basic recipe in any self-respecting kitchen. A delicious and simple dish that can be a first course at Christmas or a unique dish with a large bowl of soup at a homemade dinner.
Today we present the modern version of this soup originating in France, made with dry bread, broth and caramelized onions.
The Coffee shop Majestic located in Rua de Santa Catarina N ° 122, opened its doors in 1921 with the name of “Elite”. It was designed by architect Joao Queirós inspired by the work of maestro Marques da Silva. At its inauguration attended all the personalities of the political and artistic world
Art Deco in Porto
In 1922, the name was changed to the current one. Art Deco style was one of the most luxurious places in Oporto. The marble facade is adorned with plant motifs of sinuous shapes. A trio of charming columns marks the facade. In the upper part a pediment crowns the decoration with the Majestic’s initials. On the sides there are two representations of children who, amusing, invite the passer-by to enter.
For this dish to be a success we have to make the meat very tender inside, melting in the mouth before the first bite, something that the amaricans call “fall-off-the-bone”. But on the other hand the outer side should be crispy and caramelized.
This is possible following a few simple steps. Here we go:
Place the Ribs on aluminum foil, salt on both sides with coarse salt and add in a quantity necessary ground black pepper, or if you prefer very spicy, the pepper should be white. A little whiskey is added ( or White Wine)
In the first part of the cooking you should wrap each of the ribs in the foil. Do not let the top layer of aluminum foil stick to the rib, as it can stick during the cooking process.
We introduce the ribs to the oven on moderate heat 320 ° F to 340 ° F. One hour (60 min) should be cooked on each side and once the 2 hours of cooking are finished, the meat will be very tender. The spice will be similar to that of boiled meat, with little color. In fact they have been boiling in BBQ sauce and Whiskey
For the last step we open the aluminum paper exposing the upper part. It is important to leave the rid in the aluminum foil forming a tray, since in the lower part are the cooking juices. Put BBQ sauce back on top and introduce it to the kitchen fee again for approximately 15 min. The oven should be at about 420 ° F . After this is turned over, it is repeated to the operation of the other side and another 15 min more.
Repeat this operation of adding BBQ sauce on both sides for 5 more minutes, at about 500 ° F.And they are ready to serve!
