Olla podrida is the name of a stew, known in the old times as "olla
podrida". In the olla or pan you take everything you have at home or
at the farm, pork meat, cauliflowers, carrots, potatis, offal, lard.
And let it cook it for hours.
This is olla podrida, also known as "guisado" or "puchero".

> Thank you Ana!  I own a very nice paellera and too many people have tried to "correct" me and call it simply a "paella".  That is the name of the food you cook in it, not the pan itself.  Huzzah!
