Galician stew

Published by Marta on 26/11/17

Firstly I should mention that, apart from the meat indicated in the ingredient section, other parts of the pork can be used (head, ear, tail..) and chicken, marrowbone, etcetera, can also be added. In any case, the pork meat we used must be properly desalinated.

A recommendation: don’t throw away the broth. You can freeze it and use it to cook Galician broth, soup, Galician crepes or whatever you wish. I say this because there are people who throw it away.

Ingredients

Servings 6 people


  • 1 kg pork shoulder
  • ½ strip pork rib salted
  • 1 piece pancetta
  • 4 chorizo
  • ½ kg veal
  • 8 potato
  • 1 cabbage or turnip leaves
  • ½ kg chickpea boiled

Step by step instructions

  • We boil all the meat together, and when it is almost ready (1 ½ hour) we pour into another pot enough broth to boil the potatoes and the vegetables.
  • If we are not using chickpeas that have been previously boiled, we should have left them soaking for at least 12 hours and boiled with the broth we used to boil the meat until they are tender.
  • When everything is boiled we drain it and serve it.
