"Sofrit pagès" is one of the most typical dishes of Ibizan gastronomy. It is a hearty dish in which flavour is the protagonist, mixing meat, potatoes and sausages typical of the islands.
It was traditionally made during the slaughtering of the pigs, as the working days were very intense at that time, which meant that a meal was needed to provide the necessary energy.
Here, we explain how to make delicious "sofrit pagés":
To begin with, prepare a broth with the meat and set it aside.
In a separate pot, add the lard, a drizzle of oil, the bacon, the sobrassada, the sausage, 2 heads of garlic, a chopped parsley, 4 cloves of garlic and the potatoes.
When everything is fried, add the chopped boiled meat and 2 or 3 glasses of stock.
Add salt, pepper, a pinch of cinnamon, 3 or 4 cloves, saffron and paprika.
Leave it on a low heat, stirring the pan from time to time so that it doesn't stick, until it is ready and the stock has almost been used up.
It's ready! The "sofrit pagès" is served as a second course, the first is the soup or rice that is prepared with the leftover stock.
