Ingredients:

Beef Chuck

Assorted salted pork cuts

Smoked Sausage (such as Polish)

Potatoes

Pumpkins

Chayote Squash

Okra

Beets

Cabbage

Plantain

Carrot

Farofa

Boil Meats until tender at least 3 hours.  Boil Vegetables beginning with longest cooking time (ie Potatoes) until tender.  Add Farofa to a skillet and simmer with broth from the cooked meats until creamy.  Serve meats and vegetables on a large platter with Pirão on the side.
