Chorizo a la Sidra is a traditional Asturian dish. Asturias is located in the northern region of Spain.
The chorizo a la sidra recipe calls for sidra, which is Spanish cider, an extremely popular beverage in Asturias.
The combination of ingredients of chorizo cooked in Spanish olive oil and the sweetness of Spanish sidra truly is a match made in heaven.
In a frying pan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat.
Slice the chorizo into 1/2" pieces. Add the chorizo slices to the pan and fry until the pieces start to brown, about 5 minutes.
Add the sidra and the bay leaves and toss the chorizo to coat. Simmer until the sidra turns syrupy with streaks of red oil on top from the chorizo, about 10 minutes.
Serve chorizo in the warm cider.
