Pork Braised in Sherry with Tomatoes and Chorizo

Although summer is a time for cold suppers and salads, we do need some braised dishes with lots of sauce for all the abundance of summer vegetables harvested in late summer. So, no apologies for this wonderful dish which captures all the flavours of a Mediterranean summer.

 
 

This recipe is from A Year in My Kitchen

Method

Start off by chopping the trimmed pork into largish cubes, then remove the skin from the chorizo and slice it into thinnish rounds.

Next heat one tablespoon of the oil in the casserole over a high heat and when it’s really hot add a few of the cubes of meat to brown well on all sides.

Remove them to a plate then continue to brown the rest of the meat in small batches, adding a little more oil if required.

Now add the rest of the oil and brown the onions (about 6 minutes or so), before adding the garlic and cooking for another minute.

Next return the meat to the casserole and stir in the flour to soak up the juices, then add the chorizo followed by the tomatoes, sherry and sherry vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle in the thyme and bay leaves then give everything a good stir.

Lastly bring the casserole up to a gentle simmer, put the lid on and transfer it to the centre of the oven to cook for 1½ hours.

When the time is up, add the sliced peppers and the olives (left whole), give it all one good stir, cover again then leave it to carry on cooking for another ½ hour or until the peppers are tender.

Serve with new potatoes and, at this time of year, beautiful young broad beans or fresh shelled peas.
