When my mother was growing up, Sundays meant a special lunch. Usually, it was a hearty soup laden with extra meat and vegetables. Cooking would begin early; time would develop the broth and render tough cuts tender. Its smell filled the house. After church, her large family would take pleasure in the generous meal and time together.

This is the traditional, substantial size of pochero, but you could halve it and still feed an army. You’ll need a stockpot or a large saucepan for the latter. The vegetables are cooked in a separate pan for even cooking (and space), then arranged on a platter with the mixed meats. There are a number of ways to eat, including soup first, then the rest. I prefer a little bit of everything in my bowl.
