Steps to follow:


Before starting to make Galician soup, put the beans in a saucepan with cold water the night before; they need to soak for at least 12 hours to cook properly. The next morning, drain the beans well and set them aside.


The first step in this homemade recipe is to heat about 5 liters of water in a large pot; before it begins to boil, add the beans, sausage and meat. Add salt and let all the ingredients cook over medium heat for an hour. Stir the mixture every 15 minutes for the flavors to blend and combine.

Add the potatoes, stir all ingredients together then lower the heat and separate the meat and chorizo sausage.
