  • 250 grs / 8.8 oz. Bacon
  • 300 grs / 10.6 oz. Pork ribs
  • 8 Potatoes
  • 4 Sweet potatoes
  • 4 Carrots

  • 2 Yam
  • Salt to taste

Note:

In the Furnas Valley, close to a beautiful lake on the Azorean island of Sao Miguel, this dish is cooked by placing the pot in the ground which is heated by volcanic steam. The food cooks very slowly – for about 6 hours – and the only liquid used are the juices produced by all the ingredients. This is a typical Portuguese dish that one can boil at home in a regular pot with a cup of water home.
