This is a delicious winter dish that will definately warm you up! This recipe is very similiar to a spanish dish from the northern part of Spain, Asturias, the dish is called “Fabada”, but this is my own version which I often like to prepare. Of course, as with all of my stews and casseroles, you just cannot forget the bread. as this is a finger-licking sauce in which you will love dipping some fresh crusty bread!
INGREDIENTS: (for 4 people)
500g Fresh pork ribs
100g Bacon bits
440g Jar of cooked beans
3 Garlic cloves
1 Tsp of sweet paprika
1: Finely cut the garlic cloves.
2: Cut each chorizo into bite size pieces.
3: Chop the ribs into smaller pieces.
4: Cut the potatoes into small cubes.
5: Grab a large cooking pot and cover the base with olive oil. Heat up and add the ribs, chorizo, bacon bits and garlic. Fry for 5 minutes.
6: Add salt to your own liking, sweet paprika, the potatoes. Fill the cooking pot to the top with water and bring to the boil. Once it starts boiling, turn the heat down to medium/high, cover with the lid and leave to cook for 30 minutes. Then add the jar of beans and cook for another 10 minutes.
7: When ready leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving. If you want to make the juice thicker, just grab some of the potatoes and mash them up, then add them back in the pot and stir. This dish will last for three days if kept in the fridge and will also taste better! If you are cooking it for yourself then each time that you want to serve it, take it out of the fridge and bring it to the boil slowly so that it doesn´t stick, serve how much you like, then let it cool down before placing it back in the fridge for another time.
