Recipe type: meat

Serves: 6

Ingredients

• 500 g beef
• 350 g pig ear
• 500 g pork spare ribs
• 500 g pig’s forefoot
• 1 meat sausage
• 1 flour sausage

• Salt

Instructions

1. Boil the beef, previously seasoned with salt, in a large saucepan with plenty of water. In another saucepan boil the pork meats, seasoned also with salt.


2. Once the meats are cooked, keep them in a hot place and use half of the water used to boil the beef to cook the vegetables and the sausages, placing first the sausages, the potatoes, the turnips and the carrots and add the cabbage just before they are ready so that the cabbage does not overcook. Don’t forget to prick the sausages before placing them in the saucepan.


3. Use the other half of the water to prepare the rice. As soon as the water boils, add the rice and let it cook for about 12 minutes, seasoning with salt. Meanwhile, cut the meats in pieces and slice the sausages.


4. At last, enjoy this cozido à Portuguesa recipe with a good and full bodied red wine, preferably Portuguese.
