Preparation

  1. The night before cooking, coat the ribs with salt, wash the pig parts in cold water, salt them, and store in fridge overnight to absorb the salt.
  2. The next day, cook the pig parts in a large saucepan with 2 cups of water until they are soft and tender and set aside one cup of the broth.
  3. Now in a large saucepan cook the onions, garlic cloves, and bay leaf in the olive oil for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the ribs, pork belly, paprika and let them cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat.
  5. Add the 1 cup of the broth you set aside earlier from cooking the pig parts and let the ribs cook for another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the rest of the meats, chopped cabbage, carrots, crushed tomatoes, and butter.
  7. Stir gently and let them cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
