Cozido (European Portuguese: [kuˈzeedu] or Brazilian Portuguese: [kuˈzidu]) is a traditional stew of different meats and vegetables, with numerous regional variations throughout Portugal. It is considered part of the Portuguese heritage.

Portuguese cozido has its origins in the Beira[citation needed]. It is a rich stew that usually includes shin of beef, pork, assorted offal, Portuguese smoked sausages (morcela, farinheira and chouriço) and in some regions chicken, served with cabbage, carrots, turnips, rice, potatoes, and collard greens. It is often served with olive oil and red wine.
