Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan/gas 5. Heat the oil in a large shallow hob-safe casserole over a medium-high heat, add the sausages and chorizo and fry, turning, to brown all over. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the onion, garlic and peppers to the oil left in the casserole, then fry over a medium heat for 8 minutes until softening and lightly golden.
  3. Add the sherry to the casserole, let it bubble for a couple of minutes, then stir in the membrillo/honey, tomatoes, stock, bay leaves, half the parsley and the sausages and chorizo. Bring to a fast simmer, then cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes, then remove the lid and cook for 10 minutes to reduce the sauce.
  4. Remove and discard the bay leaves, then taste and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the remaining parsley, then serve with your choice of carb.

  1. Easy swaps: If you’re not keen on chorizo, add a second pack of pork sausages and replace the padrón peppers with a sliced sweet red or yellow pepper.

  2. Make the casserole up to 2 days ahead. Cool, then cover and chill.
