Its Spanish name comes from the traditional way of eating the meat ingredients in the casserole, with your fingers, which means you will end up with fingers that are sticky (“pringados” in Spanish). But let’s get back to the point.
Meats / Eggs
First, prepare the brown stock with the stock made from the bones with marrow, vegetables and bouquet garni for flavour. The next step is to remove the fat and clarify this stock.
For the casserole, add the vegetables (diced to form a mirepoix), flank, ribs, belly, chorizo and black pudding, as well as the chickpeas that will have been left to soak overnight. Brown a little and then cover with the brown stock and the vegetable stock. Keep checking to ensure that it always has enough stock. The final consommé is very important. It is an essential part of the dish. Cook for 4 hours over a very low heat. Separate the lean meat, chickpeas and cooking stock (with its amazing flavour).
Make a small sphere of stock jelly after clarifying again, measuring 1 cm x 1 cm.
Cover with the lean meat, making a circumference with a radius of around 2.5 cm
Make dough 1, with prior leavening. Dissolve the yeast in some of the warm water. Place the flour in the bowl and add the water and yeast mixture along with the rest of the water. Mix well to form a dough, kneading gently until it no longer sticks to your hands. Place in a bowl and cover with transparent film. Leave to rise until it doubles in size.
Meanwhile, make dough 2. Place the flour in the bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Mix and knead well to form a dough. Place in a bowl and cover with transparent film. Leave the dough at room temperature. Once dough 1 has risen, degas it and slowly add it in pieces to dough 2. They have to be mixed together very well, we need to end up with a smooth and homogeneous dough. Once the dough is ready, cut it into 60 g portions, form these into balls, place them on a tray lined with baking paper and cover with transparent film.Leave the balls to rise until they double in size.
Start heating the sunflower oil. Fry the balls in the oil for around 5 minutes, turning them over constantly. Drain by placing on absorbent paper, then coat them generously in Maltosec + cornflour + chickpea butter (imitating icing sugar)
Whip the cream until it splits. Separate the whey from the fat. Prepare the butter and mix it with the cooked Fuente Sauco chickpeas from the casserole = Thermomix. Butter + maltosec + cornflour = chickpea powder.
Leave the enriched stock to reduce and add Xantham gum. Place it in Starlux-style moulds. Write the name of the dish and ingredients on the lid.
Sauté the mirepoix vegetables in a stockpot. Add the bones and sauté thoroughly. Pour the Txakoli wine to deglaze and catch the juices at the bottom of the stockpot. Add the bouquet garni for seasoning. Leave for 4 hours. Strain.
Take your pestle and mortar and start making the garlic mayonnaise. Peel the garlic cloves and scald them twice in water and once in milk. Thicken with 50% strong and 50% mild olive oil so that the flavour is not too strong. To make a good garlic mayonnaise, add salt and crush with the garlic in the pestle and mortar for 7 - 10 minutes before emulsifying slowly with the oil. It is important to add the oil drop by drop. The garlic has an emulsifying power that makes it possible to obtain an emulsified sauce using the fat from the oil and the air of the mortar. Place the pear + sugar + butter in a bowl, cover with film and place in the microwave for 6 minutes. After these 6 minutes, remove the plastic film and the peel and beat. Make a purée and mix it with the garlic mayonnaise. Place it in small pipettes and set aside.
Use the micro sprouts and petals to decorate, add colour and improve the dish with their flavour.
The dish is served in a mini version of the traditional cooking pot called an “olla ferroviaria”. Place the embers below it. In the casserole we add the hot cooking stock. The “Starlux” and the Pringá will go in the mini pot.
This dish was made with a lot of art, love and quality ingredients, using a set of kitchen utensils that, as well as being practical and durable, also have a sophisticated design.
