Method

  1. Heat the olive or rapeseed oil in a large heavy-based pan. Add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the celery and peppers and cook for a further 5 mins.
  2. Add the sausages and fry the sausages for 5 minutes, then stir in the garlic, spices and dried thyme and continue cooking for 1 – 2 mins or until the aromas are released.
  3. Pour in the wine and use a wooden spoon to remove any residue stuck to the pan. Add the tinned tomatoes, and fresh thyme and bring to a simmer. Crumble in the stock cube and stir in.

"cooking chorizo sausages". What are they then? Is there a chorizo sausage one doesn't cook? Pardon my stupidity, I'm only a bloke.

Really nice recipe, my sausages were a bit anemic- think next time I'd pre-brown the sausages first and then add them according to the recipe. There will definitely be a next time!

I really like the sound of this recipe and want to make it for 8 friends next weekend. How many does this recipe serve? I can't seem to find it on the recipe page, but then I am new to GoodFood so maybe I've missed it! Any ideas pls?

Used regular chorizo ring chopped into smaller sausages (cheaper), at least double the quantity of spices, added grated carrot, and used the stock cube with 125ml water instead of wine. It was amazing! Served 2 for big dinner, plus 2 lunches and 1 more big dinner (which may turn into another lunch as there's loads left!)

The only thing I'd do differently next time would be to take out the veg, brown the sausages first then add veg back and deglaze with stock/wine. I had too much veg to brown the sausages properly.

Really gorgeous & extremely tasty. Very easy to make too. Easy to double up for large family meals

Made this or my 2 small boys. They loved it and so did I! Just used plain sausages as that is all I had and chucked in a few carrots and mushrooms! Lovely

This recipe was AMAZING! Although there was way too much thyme. We ondidn't use any fresh thyme and only put in a small tsp of dried thyme but it was very overpowering. Despite this, I would definitely make it again. We had it with mash for more of a comfort dish but think it would be lovely with rice. I even had enough to bring some to work today for lunch!

Yummy comfort food. Didn't have aduki beans so used borlotti instead, and skipped the celery. Will definitely be making this again.

For me, the balance was off - the strongest flavours were tomato and smoked paprika which I do like but they needed toning down a bit. Overall I liked it but will adjust the quanities next time.

I loved this recipe! As a cheapo student I could only get a small chunk of chorizo from the deli counter and missed out the wine and cumin but it was amazing and good for comfort as well as the change purse :)

Yum yum yum. I browned my sausages separately and sliced the chorizos. Then added chorizo back to casserole; finished it off then added the remaining sausages. Then cooked in oven gas mark 4 for 1 hour. Served with creamy mash hevan :)

coconutcadang - never use cheap wine for cooking. The best rule is, if you like to drink it, it's ok to cook with it.

Had ths last night and i have to say i was a little underwhelmed. It was ok but i felt that the sausages were wasted in it as they were overpowered by the chorizo. It may be better after leaving it for a day but probably won't be making it again.

This tastes absolutely fabulous. The best meal I have cooked in the last few weeks. The smoked Paprika gives it a wonderful taste.

I've never cooked with wine; what's a good wine to use?

This is great, definately comfort food for these cold days. The sauce is gorgeous, can't help thinking I could use the sauce base for other things to. Happy cooking!
