Pork with clams and chorizo

Course: MainDifficulty: Easy



We enjoyed this one pot wonder for lunch last Sunday. We sat outside in the garden and cracked open a bottle of rose to go with it. Oh yes, and I served it with a bowl of white rice. This combo of pork with clams and chorizo is a great one – especially with the tomato sauce base. It is simple and simply delicious.
