  • 1.5 pounds of uncooked chorizo
  • 2 tablespoons good quality olive oil
  • 1 cup of red wine
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley to serve
  • 1 loaf rustic bread to serve


  • Slice the chorizo into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chorizo to the skillet and fry for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Add the wine, garlic, and bay leaves and bring to the boil. Swirl to dissolve any sediment from the chorizo, and reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the wine has reduced to a thick sauce.
  • Garnish with fresh, chopped parsley and serve immediately with bread.
