This is a very unusual recipe I got from my cousins in southern Brazil. If you can find farinha de mandioca, you're in good shape. Otherwise...I'm not sure if there are any substitutes!

Short ribs (as many as you think you'll need for the group you're cooking for)

About 1/2 hour before the barbecue, marinate the ribs in red wine, salt, pepper, vinegar and marjoram. Barbecue the ribs until they're almost done, remove, coat well with farinha de mandioca and put them back on the grill until they're really well done. Believe me, it's scrumptious stuff!
