There's been a lot of talk recently about the unworthiness of baguettes and pizzas recently, so I thought why not create a thread for worthy recipes? These should preferably be dishes you've come up with yourself, but really anything goes if you want to make me sad. Without further ado, here's: Jojobobo's hot and sour steak sauce Background: I ordered a Chinese with a dish that was advertised as "hot and sour", but I found it to be disappointing on both fronts. From there I came up with a sauce that delivers on both those aspects, and most importantly contains chorizo. This recipe is more than enough for two people, I'll usually have it with steaks one night and then pasta another. Serves: 4 Ingredients: 1 chorizo sausage 2 sliced red peppers (bell peppers or sweet pointed peppers as you'd prefer) 400g chopped tomatoes (tinned is fine) 200mL red wine (or one of those miniature bottles at around 180mL. I usually use rioja) 100mL red wine vinegar 1 heaped teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 heaped teaspoon smoked paprika Method: Chop the chorizo into around inch long pieces, then half each of those again. Dry fry the chorizo over a medium heat until golden, then add to a sauce pan. If cooking steaks reserve the chorizo oil for frying, otherwise discard. Add the remaining ingredients to the sauce pan, bring to a boil and the cover with a lid. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 and 1/2 hours. Uncover and break up the chorizo further, using a potato masher or whatever else would be appropriate. You're looking to retain some meaty chunks of chorizo, but also to breakdown a fair amount so incorporates directly into the sauce. Simmer with the lid on for a further half and hour, the uncover and allow to reduce for about an hour (or for less, if you want a thinner consistency). Serve with tasty steak, pasta, or smothered all over your lover. There we have it! I will guarantee deliciousness, and it doesn't really require much effort. More cayenne pepper or vinegar can be added to taste, however I'm wimpy with spice these days so I don't want much more than a bit of heat and the sourness works for me. You could add more ingredients if you want (onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, etc.) but I like the simple smokiness of the sauce without complicating it further. Now I've shown you mine, you show me yours!
