Chorizo al Vino Tinto Recipe (Chorizo in Red Wine)
This classic Spanish tapas recipe makes a simple and delicious appetizer. Braising the chorizo in red wine infuses it with amazing flavor!
- 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.
