This dish takes a long time to prepare and is served in three sets: pasta or rice served with broth, vegetables or simply Turkish peas with bacon, and finally meat and sausages. Moreover, meat in Cocido madrileño is of different kinds: beef, pork, and chicken. Not to mention the fact that chorizo sausages are also diverse.
