A one pot recipe that is as quick to bring together as it was to write down here. It makes a warming, hearty sauce that is equally happy alongside pasta, rice or a baked potato. Tender pork mince is a perfect foil for the warming mediterranean flavours of chorizo. If you love the cajun vibe, add a little sweet and smoky paprika with the thyme.


  • 500g pork mince
  • 200g chorizo, finely chopped 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 125ml red wine
  • 400g tinned tomatoes
  • 250ml vegetable stock
  • Big pinch dried thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • salt & pepper


Finely chop the carrot, onion & garlic.

In a heavy bottomed casserole dish cook the carrot mixture on medium-high heat with 1 tbsp olive oil until softened and taking on some colour – a couple of minutes.

Add pork and chorizo and cook, stirring, until meat browned all over.

Add tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.

Add red wine, tinned tomatoes, stock, thyme & garlic, reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes or until the liquid has reduced to a Bolognese consistency, stirring occasionally.

Serve with rice, pasta, couscous or potatoes – whatever you fancy!
