Pork, Chorizo & Bean Stew

Pork , Chorizo and Bean Stew

This dish has it’s origins in my plan for a dinner of  tapas , but after a  busy week cooking a lot of little dishes was not quite on the cards  .So I scaled the dish back to one slow cook dish, throwing everything together and serving it with  plenty of freshly baked bread and wine.

The dish was lovely , heat from the chilli and paprika and a depth from the sherry. It might seem a little strange to use two types of beans,  I like the different textures, but you could use potatoes as well.

I made some fresh foccacia from a recipe from the Domestic Goddess in Training

    Lovely. We make something similar to this often, it’s a really versatile dish. Good idea to mix the beans too, I hadn’t thought of that.
