    About this recipe: Chouriço is simply the Portuguese chorizo. All the better if you can find Portuguese chouriço for this dish, but the more ubiquitous Spanish chorizo will work just fine. Serve over mash or rice.

    Serves: 8 

    • 1kg (2 1/4 lb) fresh chouriço, casings removed and diced
    • 2 green peppers, seeded and chopped
    • 2 red onions, peeled and chopped
    • 175g (6 oz) tomato purée
    • 225ml (8 fl oz) red wine
    • 225ml (8 fl oz) water
    • 6 cloves garlic, crushed

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10hr  ›  Ready in:10hr15min 

    1. In a slow cooker, combine the sausage, green pepper, onion, tomato purée, wine, water and crushed garlic. Stir so that everything is evenly distributed. Cover, and set on Low. Cook for 8 hours. Uncover the pot, and cook an additional 2 hours to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.

    Don't have a slow cooker?

    Simply simmer everything on the hob in a large covered casserole for 2 to 3 hours instead. Uncover during the last 30 minutes.

    Tons of flavour in this - will definitely have again. Made a few tweaks though: couldn't get any chorizo so had to go with 'Spanish sausages' from the local butcher which are a close approximation but they needed browning in a frying pan first. Added about two teaspoons of paprika. Didn't have quite enough tomato puree so added a good squirt of ketchup. In the end I didn't find it needed any time for the water to evaporate as it was thick enough already. Served with garlic bread to mop up the sauce. Good stuff! - 09 Jul 2016
