COOK'S NOTES FOR PORK AND CHORIZO PAELLA

The pictures show this paella being cooked on a barbecue in a traditional paella pan but in reality it can be cooked just as well on the cooker in a frying pan, just make sure it's a large one. The star of all paellas is the rice followed by the vegetable and stock base.

In this recipe both of those are cooked in a traditional manner. We have departed from tradition though by using pork mince which keeps costs down. Add chunks of pork if you want to splash out. The chorizo adds lots of flavour and colour to the paella.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Add the oil, onions, sweet peppers and chorizo to the pan on a medium heat and fry for 15 minutes. Turn and stir the ingredients frequently.

Move the ingredients to one side of the pan and add the pork mince. Fry the pork (stirring and separating it) for seven minutes.

Frying the vegetables 

STEP 2

Add the tomatoes and garlic to the pan, stir all the ingredients together and cook for 15 more minutes stirring as it cooks.

Pour the stock into the pan, add the rosemary, sage and garlic. Taste the mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Pour the paella rice into the pan and even it out.

STEP 3

Cook on a medium high heat (just boiling) for ten minutes then lower the heat slightly and let the paella simmer for eight minutes until the liquid is absorbed by the rice. Don't stir the paella after the rice has been added.

Take the pan off the heat, and cover with silver foil and let it stand for three minutes or so. While the paella is standing slice the lemons.

Decorate the paella with lemon slices and a few sprigs of parsley.
