About the Braised Pork with Chorizo

HTC Braised Pork and Chorizo
Hope you remain well?
Just a question about the braised pork with chorizo from the HTC Book. I note that the recipe needs white wine vinegar (or possibly cider vinegar, I forget) - either way, I don't have it. And I don't have the wine either. Can I make the recipe with just a stock of some kind or does it need either or both of those ingredients to make the dish work?
Is that How to Cheat that you mean?
Are you using tinned tomatoes or something else?
Yes, from the How to Cheat book. I’m using passata - I think the recipe calls for tomato Frito but I can’t source that at the moment. :)
In that case, yes, I think you can swap the wine and vinegar for stock. At the end of the cooking you could add a spot if lemon juice if it needs a bit of sharp! (and if you have it!).
We are all well thank you. All working separately from home but very much in touch.
All best wishes and keep safe
Hi Lindsey, Delia
The dish worked just fine with stock :). Thanks for your advice :)
I also stirred in a tbsp of creme Fraiche towards the end which was a nice addition :)
Best wishes for the sunshine today
Excellent, thank you for letting us know.
Have a good day Rob.
