It is a classic of a home cooking recipe. To make the dish we will need large sausages, potatoes, onion, garlic and a glass of red wine. This dish is very easy to make and you can personalize it with your own mix of herbs and various spices.

Chorizo with wine

It is a perfect tapa or appetiser that is great with vermouth. Mix onion, bay leaf, small sausages, red wine and a little salt. Sprinkle with the red wine chorizos and add a pinch of salt. It is normal to present them cut into slices covered in sauce in a clay pot.

Sirloin with red wine

To make this recipe, we will take sirloin medallions, potatoes, butter, cream, 750 ml of red wine, salt, pepper and some herbs. We can add a grated cheese on top of the potatoes to make it different and then pour wine into a casserole dish next to the sirloin.

Pears with wine

It is another traditional and perfect recipe for a hot dessert. Take 4 pears, for example, half a glass of white or red wine, water, cinnamon and sugar. We start by boiling the white wine with half a litre of water, sugar and cinnamon stick. Then we will place the pears and cook them. Later, we will introduce the pears in the wine sauce to cook them for a few minutes. We can let them cool down and serve them with the red wine sauce that we will have prepared.

Hot chocolate with red wine
