A Spanish Red is Good with Pork and Walnut Casserole

We cooked Pork and Walnut Casserole, a Supercook recipe we had not done for ages.

Cubed pork fillet is casseroled with onions, garlic, green chillies, potatoes, coriander leaves, canned tomatoes, salt, pepper, sugar, thyme and chicken stock.  Halved walnuts are added towards the end.  We served with boiled rice.

Our tastes have changed a bit since we last cooked this recipe, because we found it a little bland compared with some of the fully-flavoured meals we have enjoyed in recent times. 2014-12-28 17.41.43

We decided to pair the meal with a bottle of El Bombero 2011, a full-bodied Spanish Garnacha red from the Sunday Times Wine Club. For a pairing with a previous vintage of this wine see here

The wine was smooth and rich with spicy black cherry fruits and a good match with the meal.
