Spanish pork and vegetable stew is a perfect dish for the autumn weather that coming. Perfect on the cold night with a big glass of Rioja, this rustic and comforting stew is a variation on the style popular in central Spain. Using delicious products local to the area, it is packed full of flavour: smoky chorizo, sweet peppers and rich tomatoes. What is the best, it is perfect dish for evenings with guests or big families. A good, hearty dish for everyone. In this recipe is used jamón, the Spanish ham. In English it refers to certain types of dry-cured ham from Spain. There are two primary types of jamón: jamón serrano (meaning ham from the sierra or mountains) and jamón ibérico (ham from the Black Iberian pig). Any type of ham can be used instead of jamón, so do not worry about it.
