Wash the meat very well and let it soak for half an hour in water.
Discard the soaking water and place the meat in a large pot well covered with water for about 2 inches (5 cm). Add a tablespoon of salt, garlic, and onion.
Bring to a boil and cook over high heat. With a spoon discard the foam that will form during the first half-hour.
Set the heat to medium-low, cover the pot and cook for about an hour and a half.
While the meat is cooking, prepare the vegetables. Wash them, peel them, and cut them into chunks.
When the meat will be very soft and tender, add the vegetables.
Continue cooking for another 20-25 minutes or long enough for the vegetables to cook perfectly.
Adjust salt to taste and make sure there is enough liquid to cover the ingredients. Turn off the heat and serve.
HOW TO SERVE CALDO DE RES
I strongly suggest to serve this hearty dish with corn tortillas and mexican rice. You can choose what kind of rice you prefer since it can be served with red rice, white riceand even green rice if you like.A nice, spicy salsa is a must so a squeeze of lime!. The typical sauce to serve with Cocido is Salsa de Molcajete, it makes the dish even more outstanding. But if you want something more smokey and spicy try this chile de árbol sauce.
