Prior to my birthday spiced pork roast lunch I served up some little nibbles on a tapas theme, first came my tortilla and then a most pleasing and simple recipe.
Chorizo in Red Wine
500g Chorizo, I used cooking Chorizo
200ml Gutsy Spanish red wine
Prick the chorizo several times, place in a small saucepan and pour in the red wine. Bring to the boil and simmer away for 20 min. Leave to cool and then cover and leave for 8 hours or overnight to marinate. Drink the remainder of the bottle of wine.
Next day slice the chorizo into 5mm slices and quickly fry in a frying pan, add the remaining red wine and cook away until the sauce has reduced and gone thick & sticky. Serve hot.
This really was spectacular, everybody loved it and I only just managed to get a photo taken before it was devoured!
Welcome to my cooking diary. I am a fairly good cook willing to try most things, I hope to continue to expand my repertoire and cook healthy (ish) dishes. I use this blog as a aide memoire so I don't forget what I have cooked!
