Galician Pork and Vegetable Stew Recipe

Galician Pork and Vegetable Stew Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups dried garbanzo beans (chickpeas; about 91/2 ounces)
  • 1 1 1/2-pound rack baby back pork ribs, cut into 3-rib sections
  • 1 to 1 1/4 pounds ham, cut into 3x2x3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 1-pound smoked ham shank
  • 1 pound fully cooked smoked Spanish chorizo, cut into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 1 pound skirt steak, cut crosswise into 8 pieces
  • 8 ounces 1/3-inch-thick slices pancetta (Italian bacon), coarsely chopped
  • 5 large leeks (white and pale green parts only), halved lengthwise, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 pounds 3-inch-diameter white-skinned potatoes, peeled, halved
  • 1 pound kale (2 large bunches), center ribs removed, cut crosswise into 3/4-inch wide strips (about 16 cups)

Recipe Preparation

  • Place garbanzos in large bowl. Add water to cover by 2 inches. Let soak overnight. Drain.

  • Place pork ribs, ham, ham shank, chorizo, steak, and pancetta in heavy large pot. Add 16 cups water. Bring to boil. Add garbanzos and leeks. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover partially, and simmer until garbanzos are tender, adjusting heat as needed to maintain active simmer, about 1 hour. Add potatoes and kale; simmer until potatoes are tender, 40 to 50 minutes.

  • Using slotted spoon, divide meats, vegetables, and broth among 8 large bowls.

What to Drink

  • The rich stew needs a big red wine. José recommends a Ribera del Duero from northern Spain, like the Bodegas Alejandro Fernández 2006 'Pesquera' Tinto ($34). The Zarus 2004 Barrica ($15) would also be a good choice.

Recipe Summary

  • Pork:
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon Spanish smoked paprika or hot paprika
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
  • Dough:
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Filling:
  • Cooking spray
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups thinly sliced sweet onion
  • 2 cups red bell pepper strips
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • ¼ cup chopped Spanish serrano ham or prosciutto (about 1 1/2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • Dash of crumbled thread saffron
  • Remaining Ingredient:
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

To prepare the meat, combine the first 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag, and add the pork to bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

To prepare the dough, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine the water, the oil, and egg in a medium bowl. Gradually add the oil mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface knead lightly until smooth. Divide dough in half. Cover with plastic let rest about 30 minutes.

To prepare filling, heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add the pork mixture sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook 5 minutes or until pork loses its pink color. Add onion and bell pepper cook 5 minutes. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in tomato, ham, wine, and saffron cook 5 minutes.

Working with 1 portion of dough at a time (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), roll each portion into a 13-inch circle on a floured surface. Place 1 portion of dough on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spoon filling onto dough using a slotted spoon, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Place remaining portion of dough over filling. Pinch edges to seal. Cut several slits in top of dough to allow steam to escape. Brush with egg. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden brown cool. Cut into wedges.

Classic Pork Stew

I’ve got lots of free time for the next little while. My day job takes me to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where I am an IT consultant. While our dysfunctional government plays politics, hundreds of thousand of government workers are furloughed and facing uncertainty in their lives. I have a choice in dealing with these unfortunate circumstances. I can be angry and complain or I can cook. I’m choosing to cook!

Blogging requires a big chunk of my time in what is already a very full life. Juggling a relationship, work, dogs, friends, and a social life can be a challenge. The last couple of weeks have been unusually intense and I’ve only been able to fit in two posts in two weeks. I’m making the best of a bad situation and using this time off to catch up.

I always get a burst of energy with the change of seasons, and as I think about fall foods and flavors, visions of pumpkins, sweet potatoes, winter squash, cinnamon, soups and stews all start to dance around in my head. I’ve always been a fan of beef stew but pork is probably my favorite meat, so for this recipe, I’m using the “other white meat”.

In the recipe, I say that you can use your favorite cut of pork. However, since the meat will be braised for 45 to 55 minutes, I would recommend against using too lean a cut of pork. A lean cut will end up being a little dry and the fat from a less lean cut will flavor the stew. This stew made a great and hearty meal for a cool and rainy Sunday night.

Best Ever Paleo Chorizo & Vegetable Stew

A few years ago I spent three months traveling around Europe in a van. We cooked most of our meals on a little gas stove and this amazing chorizo stew was one of my favorite cooking discoveries.

It all started with a box of veggies we picked up on the side of the road in Spain for cheap because they were at the end of their life. I needed to use them up ASAP so I decided to make a big stew.

As we were on the road, I didn’t have fresh meat but I did have some dried chorizo sausage, onion and garlic, so I chopped everything up and threw it in the pot.

Thirty minutes later we had one of the best stews I’ve ever made…and I’ve made a few. While cooking, chorizo releases all its wonderful flavors, fats and color (from paprika) into the stew, so you really don’t need to add much more than a bit of onion, garlic and stock on top of whatever vegetables you have around.

If you want more simple recipes to make ahead of time, check out our 7 Day Make Ahead Meal Plan.

Cook’s notes

You can use dried chorizo or fresh but do look for good quality sausages with natural flavorings and ingredients. The colour should be coming from paprika and not from some color additive.

Make sure to peel the skin off the chorizo before slicing it. If you shop on Amazon, we like this brand of chorizo, and this is good quality chicken stock we like.

For those following AIP (autoimmune protocol), this stew has to me modified quite a bit because it has a lot of nightshade foods but you can still recreate something similar with a paprika free sausage (get something like a nice herb and garlic or other smoked sausage), and omit red peppers and tomatoes, swap white potatoes with sweet potatoes, and add more carrot, zucchini and maybe some leeks.

Traditional pote gallego recipe

Ingredients (for four servings)

  • Salt
  • 1 blood sausage (morcilla)
  • 12 cups of water (3 cups)
  • 2 smoked chorizo sausages
  • 1/2 kilo of potatoes
  • 1 container of broccoli rabe (500 g)
  • 1 bunch of collard greens (500 g)
  • 2 pork knuckles
  • 1 1/4 cup of dried white beans (250 g)
  • Piece of pork shoulder (lacón gallego)
  • Piece of cured unto (pork fat), preferably yellow (250 g)


  • Soak the dried white beans overnight, but don’t let them soak for over 8 hours. Then, strain and set aside.
  • Add the three liters of water, salt, bones, unto, pork shoulder, and chorizo to a pot and put on medium heat.
  • In a separate pot, add the beans along with some water (no salt). Once boiling, quickly strain and add back to the pot with cold water. Repeat the straining and cold water once more before adding the beans to the other pot.
  • Cook everything for 30 minutes.
  • Wash, peel, and thinly slice the potatoes.
  • Wash the broccoli rabe (you’ll just use the leaves, because the stalk can be very hard) and cut up. Rinse with cold water and strain.
  • Add the potatoes, broccoli rabe, and collard greens. Let cook another 30 minutes.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into 6 pieces
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen green peas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 large baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large deep pot or Dutch oven set over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and fry on all sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Add the onion and garlic cook and stir until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in the wine and stir to loosen any bits of food that are stuck to the bottom of the pot.

Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add carrots and peas, and season with cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until the chicken easily pulls away from the bone.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry potatoes in the oil, stirring frequently, until tender. Adjust heat as needed to keep them from burning. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.

To serve, place a piece of chicken onto each plate, spoon some of the carrots and peas with the cooking liquid over it and top with a spoonful of fried potatoes.
