Cocido montañés

Hello,

Recently on the video explaining quesada pasiega recipe a youtube user (digbychick) suggested me to show how to prepare another typical dish from Cantabria, and based on the description done by him I supposed it was cocido montañés. Fortunately I bring an apron from my holidays last summer in Cantabria on which is printed the recipe. It’s a really nice recipe for cold days, it’s really easy to prepare, perhaps it’s only difficulty will be bring to home all ingredients, so better write down the list before going to market 🙂

Ingredients (4 people):

  • 200 gr white beans
  • 200 gr fresh bacon
  • 1 pig’s trotter
  • 1 pig’s ear
  • 250 gr pork chop
  • 4 blood sausages
  • 1 piece of ham bone
  • 1 potato
  • 1 turnip
  • ½ cabbage
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Sweet paprika

On a bit pot add one pig’s trotter, one pig’s ear, 200 gr of fresh bacon, a piece of ham bone, 250 gr of pork chop. And 200 gr of white beans, these beans must be in water all the night before, taking in mind they would double their size. Add also some salt and cover all ingredients with cold water. Cover the pot with a lid and cook for 2 hours, take a look from time to time, and if it’s getting short of water add more water, but heat it first otherwise you will break the cook process.

After 2 hours cooking add ½ cabbage, 1 turnip and 1 potato all them cut in small pieces and cook them for 20 minutes, add also the blood sausages.

While vegetables are cooking add a bit of oil in a pan, and add 2 laminated  garlic cloves when the oil is still cold. When garlic becomes golden turn off the heat and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of sweet paprika, then mix them. Put the garlic and paprika in a mortar and grind them. Then add this mix to the pot, you can help with the water to get the most of the mix. Now just wait the 20 minutes from  vegetables aggregation and your cocido montañés is ready.
