real caldo gallego, September 21, 2005 - 11:56 AM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Vigo (Galicia), Spain
This may be a lot of things but certainly NOT caldo gallego. Caldo consists of A LOT of pork, usually cured, i.e.: ear, ribs, tail, to which you add a cut of fresh beef and maybe half a chicken. You boil all this for an hour and remove from the water. In the water you then cook the potatoes (whole), green veggies (grelos) and chorizo. In some households you add habas (white beans). Serve soup first and then the boiled ingredients.
