Chorizo with Cider Recipe
A classic Asturian dish, the balance of the meaty chorizo and tangy cider is a wonderful combination! For other great flavors, sauté the chorizo in our lightly smoked olive oil by Castillo de Canena or replace the cider with a hearty red or flavorful white wine.

Cut the sausage into 3/4-inch slices. Heat the olive oil in a medium sized sauté pan or cazuela. Once hot, gently sauté the chorizo with the bay leaf for 5-6 minutes, until lightly brown on all sides.  


Pour in the sidra and bring to a boil. Lower heat and reduce the liquid by half, about 20 minutes. Serve in the cazuela if using. 

Serve with crusty bread and a glass of chilled sidra… of course!

I have been making this and serving with crusty bread for years successfully - best ever! all you need is two ingredients, but they need to be the highest quality.
