Chouriço is a smoked cured sausage made with marinated pork meat.
In a Portuguese home, chouriço sneaks into many of our meals. It replaces bacon next to our fried eggs. At lunch a few slices are dropped into our caldo verde (the famous green soup). Makes it’s way into our cozido à Portuguesa (Portuguese boiled dinner) and when you have a few guests over, nothing is more impressive than pulling out your assador de barro (a clay cooking vessel) and flame-grill with Aguardent (Type of Portuguese brandy).
Michota is a special recipe from north of Portugal with more lean meat mrianed in red wine. Delicious, packed with flavour great as a starter or as a filling snack .
