Pork is crushed and mixed with salt and other spices (in a pimentón paste) in the Balearic Islands of Spain to create a spreadable chorizo. That, however, is a skewed view. Soft and simple to chew, it has a little spice flavor. Sobrasada from Señorío De Montanera has a fatty, nutty, juicy taste that is enhanced by the acorn-fed Iberian pigs’ fatty, nutty, juicy flavor.
Sobrasada is an excellent appetizer or afternoon snack. For a sweet treat with a kick, toast a few slices of bread enjoy it spread. To counteract the spiciness, you may add some honey or apricot jam.
You may also spread it on grilled meats and vegetables for a tasty finishing touch. In a casserole or even a tomato-based pasta dish, its bright red color makes it a welcome addition. A cream sherry would be an excellent choice to enhance the savory notes. You may also try a mild Rioja or a few glasses of Cava Brut for non-fortified reds.
