This Spanish dish has both salty and sweet elements. The ham brings out a sweet taste while the chorizo sausage brings a salty taste to the mouth. The creamy texture of the stew combined with the colors of the sausage and pancetta make this a great appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 700 grams fava beans (white, or white kidney beans)
  • 300 grams ham hock
  • 300 grams pancetta
  • 2 sausages (pork blood)
  • 2 chorizo sausages
  • 1 garlic clove (peeled and diced)
  • 1 onion (peeled and cubed)
  • fresh parsley (chopped)
  • water
  • saffron
  • salt

Directions

  1. The night before, set the beans to soak in cold water.
  2. Additionally, soak the ham hock and pancetta in warm water for 12 hours before cooking.
  3. The next day, put the beans, ham hock, pancetta, sausage, chorizo, garlic, onion and a couple of tablespoons of parsley in a stockpot. Cover with water and start to boil.
  4. When it comes to the boil, remove the foam that gathers on top.
  5. Simmer for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  6. Halfway through cooking, add the saffron and a pinch of salt.
  7. Allow to rest at least a half hour before serving.

I always couldn’t stand beans growing up, but bean stew gives traditional beans a new kick. If you can’t find chorizo sausage, any sausage that is full of flavor will help out immensely. The ham hock flavors the beans well too, I found this to be quite flavorful and my family loved it too. Slap a pan of cornbread down next to it, and it’s a family feast.
