Hello everyone, Easter is already here, the last month of a long winter so as someone suggested to me we will make our last winter dish “Fabada Asturiana” a famous meat and bean stew.

Hope you enjoy it, Mayka xxx

400gr white or butter beans
200gr pork shoulder
200gr smoked black pudding (morcilla)
200gr chorizo
1 onion
6-8 garlic cloves
2 bay leafs
1/2 tsp sweet smoked paprika
1/2 tsp hot smoked paprika
cider (optional)

Let’s Start

  1. First of all, let the beans soak overnight in a bowl of cold water.
  2. Next day, place the beans in a pan, bring to the boil for a minute and drain the beans. After the beans had been drained, return them the pan. Add the pork, chorizo, chopped onion, peeled garlic cloves and bay leaves.
  3. Cover well with water and a touch of cider if you like (optional), bring to the boil and then put into a very low simmer.
  4. Add the paprika and the saffron. Stir and leave to simmer for 2 hours stirring the pan occasionally.
  5. After 2 hours, add the Morcilla and cook for another 20 minutes. Serve very hot and with some crusty bread.

Have a lovely Easter x
