It doesn't seem to be the same recipe as the heading either. Pork & chickpea but there's no pork in the ingredient list.

Minus the morcilla (cause you can't buy this here), extra ham instead of pancetta and rthe addition of 2 chopped tomoatoes. Viola! Excellent and tasty.

The shame here is that you haven't realised that the recipe provided on the website is not the recipe Miguel uses in the video.
The 'sobrassada' gives the cocido it's edge and flavour - I've worked with Miguel, and I've seen him cook this a million times and one. The recipe is a winner.
It's unfortunate you've experienced otherwise.
