“Pork is a great favourite in our family and this dish is a good hearty meal, the addition of the chorizo makes it nice and spicy, you can serve this over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes, either way is just fine. You can slice your chorizo thin or have it a bit chunkier depending on how you like it. Since I made this for RSC I have made a few changes to the recipe and the method. I have used the invaluable reviews to make this recipe better in my opinion it was missing something, but I think it is a really good recipe now. Hope you like it.”
