The espetada is a typical Portuguese dish made of large chunks of beef rubbed in garlic and salt, skewered onto bay leaf sticks or metal skewers with vegetables such as onions, tomatoes, bell peppers or zucchini and left to grill over smouldering wood chips. Other meats including pork and chouriço are also commonly used, but there are also other types like those made from squid.
The dish can be served on a skewer which hangs from a hook on a stand. The best accompaniment for espetadas is the Portuguese sangria.
