- Parsley (to taste)
- 3 eggs
- 150 ml (2/3 cup) olive oil

- Place the meat and the chouriço in a saucepan with water seasoned with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium heat and cook for 30 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and drain the meat and the chouriço with a skimmer. Reserve the cooking water. Shred the meat with a fork and cut the chouriço into slices; set aside.
