Originally from Spain, chorizo is a highly flavoured sausage that's been adapted and is used in Mexico. By not stuffing the meat into casings, this version is simple to make, shape and fry. You can also grill them over medium-high heat for the same time.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 teaspoons smoked bittersweet paprika
  • 4 teaspoons smoked bittersweet hot paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon crumbled saffron (optional)
  • 2 lbs lean ground pork
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped pancetta (about 4 oz/125 g)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Method

In large bowl, whisk together wine, vinegar, garlic, paprika, oregano, salt, pepper, marjoram, thyme, cloves, and saffron (if using); let stand for 15 minutes.

Using hands, knead in pork and pancetta until combined. Shape by heaping 1/4 cups (50 mL) into 18 patties; place on waxed paper-lined tray. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.)

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. In batches, fry patties, turning once, until digital rapid-read thermometer inserted into centre reads 160°F (71°C), about 8 minutes.
