Spanish Pork Stew with Potatoes and Chorizo

to cook

This recipe is weekend stuff.

You assemble the ingredients, whack them into a cooking pot, then leave them in the oven while you go and do other things: relax, go back to sleep, read the papers, watch a football match.  This is one of our Sunday lunch favourites.

NOTE: Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking was published in 2008; therefore you may have difficulty finding the exact named shop ingredients that were available then.  We have kept these recipes on the site, as we know many people have successfully adapted them to what is currently available.

What you need to do here is chop the pork into 1 inch (2.5 cm) chunks and pop it straight into a flameproof casserole.

Then chop the chorizo into slightly smaller chunks before you toss it in to join the pork. Next, add the halved drained peppers, the garlic and the onion.  After that, add the thyme, some seasoning and the olive oil and toss all the ingredients together.

Next, using a pestle and mortar (or the back of a spoon), crush the saffron to a powder and add the wine vinegar. Add this to the casserole, followed by the white wine, tomato frito, olives and the potatoes.  Give everything another stir, put a lid on the casserole and bring up to simmering point on top of the stove, then transfer the casserole to the oven for 1½ hours.

Serve with green beans.
