Carne-de-sol ([ˈkaʁnʲi dʒi ˈsɔw], locally [ˈkaɦni di ˈsɔw], Portuguese for "sun-dried meat", literally "meat of sun"), also called jabá ([ʒaˈba]) is a dish from Northeastern Brazil. It consists of heavily salted beef, which is exposed to the sun for one or two days to cure.
Its origin is attributed to the sertanejos (people who live in the semi-arid countryside), who developed this local recipe to preserve meat. Nowadays, the dish is traditional and typical of the entire Northeast Region, and in restaurants all across the country.
