Chorizo braised in red wine

The chorizo makes ideal tapas and can also add a real Spanish twist to an abundance of recipes
Ingredients (makes 10-12 tapas)
  • 6 Cured chorizo sausages
  • 1 Bottle of red wine (such as Rioja)
  • 5 Garlic cloves (crushed)
  • Handful of oregano
  • Tablespoon of lemon zest
  • Black pepper


Place all of the ingredients in a large terracotta cazuela.

Pour in the wine so that the chorizo sausages are half to two thirds submerged. Bring to boil then reduce the heat and simmer.

Turn over the chorizos and continue to cook for 12 – 15 minutes.

Once cooked, cut the chorizo into segments and place on cocktail sticks ready to serve.
