Spanish Pork Potatoes & Chorizo


Nothing like a warm, hearty stew to warm you at night and this slow cooker meal hit the spot. I used pork forequarter chops, with the bone in, for this. The cheaper cut of meat for the slow cooker or stewing, the better. The meat just falls off the bone and is tender and soft. There's just something about potatoes and chorizo. They nearly go together as well as chocolate and peanut butter (oh no, did I mention that again).

Spanish Pork Potatoes & Chorizo

2 pork forequarter chops (or other cut of pork suitable for slow cooking)
3 medium potatoes, quartered
1 chorizo sausage, sliced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 medium onion, diced finely
1 tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic
2 tbs red wine vinegar (or any wine vinegar)
1 cup chicken stock
1 tbs plain flour
1 tbs sweet paprika
6 sprigs thyme (or 1 tbs dried)
green olives (optional)
chopped parsley to serve

Pan fry the pork in the olive oil. Once browned, add to the slow cooker. Fry sliced chorizo in the same pan and once crispy, add to the slow cooker. Deglaze the pan with the wine vinegar, add the flour and stir for a couple minutes, the add the stock. Stir until thickened and add to the slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on slow for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours (or in the oven for an hour and a half on 180 deg C). Add olives and chopped parsley to serve.

Serves 2.
