Spaghetti sauce with meat and chorizo

Recipe by JustJanS
READY IN: 1hr 50mins




  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes, or until it softens.
  • Add the garlic and saute for a further 5 minutes-don't allow to burn.
  • Add the sliced chorizo, and cook for a couple of minutes, until the fat starts to run.
  • Now add the meat and brown really well.
  • I've learned to do this (thanks Evelyn/Athens) over about 15 minutes to get a really good flavour, so be patient.
  • At this stage, I drain all the fat and oil off that I can.
  • Pour in the wine, and cook for a couple of minutes, then add the tomato paste, and cook a couple of minutes more.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, water, herbs, mixed spice and celery salt and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer, and cook gently for about 2 hours uncovered, stirring occasionally and making sure not too much water has evaporated or that the dish is sticking.
  • Stir through the parsley before serving over pasta of your choice.
