Lidls' meaty stuff is generally ok... I use chorizo a lot in recipes and i know what you mean about the leathery thing

*gags*

bought some the other day. didn't think it was such a special price. generally i prefer kabanos to cherizo, tho. it's less greasy :)
banned#5
This is nice if you dry fry some slices to reduce the oil/fat, then put it on top of a Lidl part-bake ciabatta with cheese, tomato and onion.
#6
good idea
#7
yum, chorizo and corn fritters for dinner next wk then ;-)
#8
Heat given...bargain...love this stuff, makes a fantastic meat pasta dish...I also fry it off in thin slices and then let the finely chopped onions fry in the oils of the chorizo, guapissimo!!

i thought it was a chew for my dog and nearly ordered. what a **** eh
#11
Really nice stuff. Bit of a nightmare at times getting the skin off (don't like leaving the skin on, gets caught in my mouth!), but still really good.
#12
The sliced, cooked chorizo from Lidl is pretty good - will have to give this a try.

So do I, but not for cooking purposes, kabanos make supreme eating as they are! (and only proper Polish ones, the Lidl ones are not brilliant unfortunately, as they are cheap!)
Very different thing really, it's like comparing spam with corned beef!

I dont' rate this type for eating "as it is," more as an ingredient. The Lidl one is OK for cooking, gives a decent enough flavour in something like a soup or a bean stew, or skewered as kebabs with chicken and pieces of red pepper & onion; however Aldi do one which is a little smaller and more expensive (£1.49 or £1.69, I forget) and is a fair bit better, stronger flavour, a little softer texture, so probably comes out as better value all in.

Still worth buying at this price though, I often keep one in the fridge, (also makes an interesting bacon alternative in many dishes)

I don't care for that one.... then again I am not a fan of "eating" chorizo, more into using it as flavour in dishes.
#15
Must be tired, I read Lidl as Lindt and had to click on the offer just to see how this related to chocolate...
#16
This is my chorizo of choice :thumbsup:

I think it has a pretty good 'authentic' quality.

H&R added

I should add that I would only ever use it 'cooked'.
#17
This is one of the best Chorizo out there ... often buy it... this is a great price!

Try this as a snack/starter, cut the chorizo into slices, pop in pan with a touch of olive oil, fry for a short while, then chuck in some good red wine to your liking. Salt and black pepper to taste of course... let it cook for a bit then serve with crusty bread, the longer you cook the wine the more it will reduce and kinda thicken ... then basically just mop it all up with crusty bread. Can be rich, but its yummy!

I often buy it too... but believe me, it is just very much an "everyday" factory produced Chorizo, as Chorizo goes! Find a decnt deli, and try some others, but no denying you won't be paying this sort of price

+1 from me about the recipe.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it's brilliant Chorizo though. Although it is great for cooking with. Try it fried as above but adding sherry vinegar to taste whilst still cooking then drizzling on top of a tomato salad. Let it cool and then eat with decent bread and a green salad. A taste of Andalucia!

Christ, I sound like a Sainsbury's advert. Muy apologias!

So far I have been consuming Lidl meat (and other!) products for MANY years, and still do, some are brilliant some are ordinary, just as with most food retailers.
Quite what is SO "bad" about them after "a long time?" Whatever that means!

After an enforced switch to a low carb diet, to control Reactive Hypoglycaemic, which now includes a lot of meat and meat products that I didn't used to eat at all, I can honestly say many of which are from Lidl, then my Cholesterol levels have dropped significantly, with my HDL and LDL levels improved too, so I personally am not complaining!

Kabanos is amazing....my parents were Polish and i was brought up on the stuff. I've still yet to find a deli that does it as good as i had many years ago. The only place i've found it to be authentic from is the Christmas markets in Manchester.

I first had them when at college and we were covering the import of "exotic" foods to this country in the 70's (that then included Doner kebabs... they were "new" then, and many other things you can now buy in ANY shop!) and they were always better then too... drier and more intense flavour, but even the Polish supermarket ones are better than those from NON polish sources eg. in Aldi & Lidl.

If you let the Polish commercial ones dry by leaving them open on a shelf in the fridge for a few days, they do get a slightly more original dried quality, the salt comes to the surface a little too; but as you say not as good as they were!

My next door neighbour is of Polish origin (pre- EEC flood!) and used to go back more often & bring good sausages, but she never goes there now!

Turns out to be full price in my local :-(

You must be around the same age as me lol....where i used to live there was 1 Indian restaraunt, Indian takeaways were unheard of. We did have a Greek takeaway that did mean kebabs and the nicest fattest chips made from real potatoes and fried in lard...oooh heart attack city.

Oddly enough I knew of Indian restaurants from YEARS earlier as I lived near one that set up in 1965, (I was 7 then!) and I lived in an area of the North East where anyone not white made heads turn in the street, it certainly wasn't an "ethnic" area! (As you say, Takeaway shops didn't happen until later, in my area, Chinese takeaways came first and I suppose the Bangladeshis took on the idea) As a result I think "Indian" was the first "foreign" food I ever had! (Unless you count KFC... first eaten in London in 1973! Now they are everywhere!)

Although I heard of Doner kebabs in about 1976, it was when in London in about 1978 that I first had one... and they were a LOT better then than now. By about 1980 they were almost everywhere in every part of the country, that was when they just took off - but the standard has dropped ever since, as they are mostly factory made and not the small scale individual product they were at first! Hence you need to be near unconscious with the effects of alcohol to even want one now! :-(

Real fish & chips have NEVER been fried in Lard (that was a domestic thing, for home use) real Fish & Chips were and ARE still fried in Beef dripping, (which was generally TOO smelly & smoky, as well as too prone to burst into flames for home use). Sadly real fish & chips are VERY rare in some parts of the county, getting rarer by the day; certainly almost non-existent in the Midlands. Only the component parts of Yorkshire still have mostly real fish & chips, but the ever-progressing drift to stale crap fried in cheap vegetable oil is expanding rapidly there too :-(

Don't believe the heart attack thing too much!
I was a strict low fat, high fibre foodie (all wholegrains and precious little meat) from about 1995 until last year, and all it produced in me was increasing Insulin Resistance, and resulting huge, out of proportion weight gain, with non-too-good cholesterol, and an ever increasing heart attack & stroke risk!
I now eat a Low Glycaemic Load diet, lost a little weight (not enough, I am disabled that's my problem with exercise now) but got very good blood lipids now... eating MEAT, CHEESE, EGGS, FAT, VEGETABLES, but not a lot of carbohydrate of any sort! It seemed weird to me at first too, I was eating foods daily that I hadn't eaten in years even on special occasions!.... but now I am well, and the blood tests confirm that too!, as well as the reduced Blood Pressure! (I miss the carbs though, terribly, that's the hard part - no BREAD, RICE, PASTA, POTATOES, CEREALS, which were all favourite foods!)
