Chorizo

Recommended Posts

Love the stuff. There's always a whole chorizo sausage in my fridge.

 

In other news - Anyone who pronounces it chu-reez-o or even worse, chur-itz-o, is a cunt.

 

It's pronounced chu-reeth-o, and nothing else will suffice.

Thanks for listening.

4 chicken thighs, 2 garlic cloves, 1 tin on tomatoes, 1 chopped Chorizo ring

 

Bang it in a slow cooker for 8 hours.

 

Do something similar myself from time to time but add spuds and a yellow pepper.

 

Boss with a bottle of red.

Well, yeah. COS THAT'S HOW THEY'RE PRONOUNCED.

 

Here is a boss little mini-paella recipe for you all utilising the awesome powers of chorizo:

 

Boil some rice and stick it to one side.

 

Chop half a red chilli in to small pieces and fry in some olive oil along with some crushed or chopped garlic (don't cook too high or you'll burn the garlic)

After about 3 or 4 minutes remove the chilli and garlic and stick a few chunky slices of chorizo in the infused oil.

 

Cook the chorizo until it starts to go all nice and brown on the outside.

 

At this point, add some chopped onions and peppers and fry until almost soft.

 

Now stick some small pieces of chicken in there, and cook them bitches too. I like to add some more garlic about now as well, as it won't burn at this stage.

 

When chicken is cooked, stir your rice in and let it soak up all the chilli/garlic/chorizo goodness.

 

Stick a lid on the pan and simmer on the lowest heat possible for about 5 minutes or so.

 

Then eat it. Then rep me.

Slow cook that shit in red wine. Eat it with crusty bread and a fuck load of other Taps, such as one of my personal favourites Morcilla with chickpeas, spinach and pine nuts. Man i fucking love that shit.

Anyone who says Chu-reeth-o whilst speaking English (unless they are Spanish) just sounds like a complete idiot. Much the same as anyone who does not pronounce the s in Paris whilst speaking in English sounds like a complete idiot.

 

And if your arguement is thats how they say it is Spain, well, it is not all of Spain that say it like that anyway as, surprise surprise, they have different accents, so in some parts of Spain (as well as practically all of Latin America) they say Cho-reez-o

 

Anyone who says chur-itz-o is just a fucktard who has confused Italian with Spanish.

That looks bloody lovely, Jorge. Where can you buy it?

 

Spain. But I imagine Sainsburys/Waitrose might do it in the fancy foreign food aisle? I always bring it back for family when I come so, if you do bowl over, don't forget to stock up on nov-el-ty meat products.

 

By the way, chorizo in cider (not Strongbow etc, surprisingly enough) or chorizo in brandy as a tapas is fooking lovely.

 

Also, Tom... sorry to be a paella-snob but that recipe should not have that name attached! Sounds more like a risotto or, possibly 'chorizo, chicken and rice'. People have lost limbs for less.

 

Incidentally, whilst we're pronouncing foreign shit poshly; 'pa-ey-a' or 'pie-ella'?

Mince some and then mix it up with beef and pork mince. Throw in some chopped onion and crushed garlic and shape into burgers.

i've been speaking spanish for about 26 years, on and off, and I like to think I'm relatively fluent. I've spoken Spanish in at least 10 regions of Spain and in 4 or 5 altogether separate spanish speaking countries.

In all those parts of Spain and in all those countries, without exception, it has always been CHU REETH O.

 

And not because of some regional quirk of dialect, it's just because that's what it's called!!

 

See also - Moet & Chandon.

apart from being a distinctly average and grossly over priced Champagne, it's pronounced Mow-et, and absolutely not Mow-ey as every wannabe Delboy would like you to believe.

Aye. I know it's not a paella, but it's paella-esque in that it's meat and rice.

 

Either way, it's fucking boss. So boss we had it for tea tonight.

 

BOOM!

Hijo de puta!

 

If you say it that way whilst speaking Spanish, that is fine, but if you say it whilst speaking English, you are either a hooray henry or Australian and you also say parsta.

 

Should we call you Henry from now on?

after initial sceptism i´ve gradually grown quite fond of chorizo with lime and a few beers.

 

good shout on the morcilla, i´ve used morcilla filling in all sorts of different dishes, a morcilla filled shepherds pie being a notable success.

 

its chorizo pronounced with a z for me but i don´t speak with a spanish accent tio.
