This comforting stew is packed full of flavour, thanks to the intensity of the chorizo sausage, the tenderness of the pork and the creaminess of the butter beans. A wonderful stew for the colder months.
- In a large frying pan or casserole heat the oil over a medium heat, add the pork and fry for 4-5 minutes, or until browned on the outside but not completely cooked on the inside, remove and set aside.
- Add the chorizo to the pan and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the oils start to release. Remove from the pan and set aside with the pork.
- Add the onion to the same pan and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. Now add the chilli flakes and garlic, fry for one minute. Pour in the wine and bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer for a few minutes until the volume of liquid has reduced by a quarter.
- Add the chopped tomatoes and butter beans, then return the cooked pork and chorizo to the pan and stir well. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over a low heat, cover the pan with a lid and cook for at least 45 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. If you like the pork extra tender cook for longer and add a few tablespoons of water now and again, when the sauce becomes too dry.
- To serve, stir in the honey and season, to taste, sprinkle with the parsley. Divide between 4 plates and serve with seasonal vegetables or crusty bread. Enjoy!
