chorizo in red wine

Serves: 6


200g/7 oz chorizo sausage

200ml/7fl oz Spanish red wine

2 tbsp brandy (optional)

fresh flat leaf parsley chopped, to garnish

crusty bread to serve


  1. Using a fork, prick the chorizo in 3-4 places and place the chorizo and red wine in a large saucepan. Bring the wine to boil, then reduce the heat to simmer, cover and cook for 15-20 mins.
  2. Transfer the chorizo and wine to a bowl, cover and leave in the fridge to marinade for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the chorizo from the bowl and reserve the marinade. Remove the outer casing from the chorizo and cut the chorizo into 5mm slices. Place the slices in a large frying pan or flameproof serving dish.
  4. If you are using brandy, pour it into a small saucepan and gently heat. Pour the brandy over the chorizo, stand well back and set alight. When the flames have died down, shake the pan gently and add the reserved wine to the pan and cook over a high heat until most of the wine has evaporated.
  5. Serve the chorizo in red wine with chunks of crusty bread. You can also provide cocktails sticks to spear the pieces of chorizo.
