Chistorra in Apple Cider

This is a tapa that originates in the northern region of Asturias, a lusciously green, area where apple orchards are abundant and so are sidrerías or cider houses.


  • 1 Packet of Chistorra
  • 3 cups Cider
  • 1 tablespoon Spanish olive oil
  • 1 Bay leaves


  1. Cut the chistorra in pieces of 5 cm long, as you can see in the picture.
  2. Place Chistorra in a large frying pan over high heat. Cook for 5 minutes or until chistorra starts to brown. Drain excess fat.
  3. Add apple cider and bay leaves to chistorra. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 5 to 8 minutes or until cider is syrupy.
  4. Spoon chistorra mixture into bowl and serve warm or at room temperature.
  5. Enjoy
