Chorizo in Cider
Chorizo cooked in cider (chorizo a la sidra) is one of the easiest tapas to make and the ultimate snack for sharing. Savoury and rich, this delicious dish is perfect to enjoy on a sunny patio with a glass of cold cider to wash it down. Happy cooking.
Yield: serves 2–4 people
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
1 stick dry-cured chorizo (200g)
2 cups dry apple cider
1 bay leaf
Parsely, chopped for garnish
Bread for dipping
Preheat an oven to 375°F.
Remove the casing from the chorizo. Discard.
Slice the chorizo into about ¼-inch thick slices and add them to a saucepan.
Cover the chorizo with the cider. Add the bay leaf and cook on a low simmer for about 45 minutes; until the cider is reduced to a thick and rich syrup.
Heat the bread in the oven for about 5 minutes. I used a crusty style roll, baguette or sourdough would also work great for this recipe.
Once the chorizo is done, turn off the heat, spoon it into a serving dish, and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
Serve your chorizo in cider with warm bread and some toothpicks for easy sharing!
