In the British and Commonwealth English, the “rump steak” is commonly called the “sirloin” in American English. On the other hand, British “sirloin” is called “porterhouse” by Americans.
The espetada is a typical Portuguese dish made usually of large chunks of beef rubbed in garlic and salt, skewered onto a bay leaf stick cooked over hot coals or wood chips. Other meats including pork and chouriço are also commonly used, but there are also other types like those made from squid but this is not a typical dish from Madeira.
The dish can be served on a skewer which hangs from a hook on a stand as it is presented to you.
