The recipe is not new. Its been refined over 20 years but what my friend taught me about this simple recipe is that FOUR different cooking methods of the same recipe produces FOUR distinct flavors and EVERY ONE a superb result.
I think my favorite is oven bake, but microwave, stove top, or BBQ are all distictiva and impressive methods using the same ingredients. simply wonderful and never fails to impress. I even run this on my other halfs restaurant menu.
I used to use a Colmans mix for this but cant get it in Spain, so I decided to make it as close as possible to that taste from fresh ingredients and BOOM! Even better than the famous mix and sooo easy.
This is a recipe with no hard and fast rules. You can change your ingredients according to availability. This is a genuine recipe from northern Spain which can be adapted because its so flexible. If you cant get minced chorizo, the best way is to use half ground beef, half pork and some pieces of chorizo cut into small pieces. Its great, easy and the taste is supreme.
This comes from a friend of mine who lived in the Algarve region of Portugal. I once had this simple meal in a harbor-side restaurant and my friend gave me the recipe. Its been adapted a little quantity wise, to suit my taste. But friends love it.
This is just one of THOSE recipes, fool your friends into thinking you've been cooking all day and they have no idea how simple it is to make. I saw the original of this in a world cookbook 20 years ago, long since lost and now adapted to perfection.
My Indian friend gave me this from his mothers chefs cookbook. Its wonderful. People always fail with rice. The secret is in the PAN, and amount of water used. Steam cooks rice.You can use the same method for plain basmati too. just using a little oil.
