5 tips para cocinar chorizos a la parrilla

Grilled Chorizo ​​is one of the most delicious dishes to share with friends or family. So, if you want to discover how to cook a good Chorizo ​​and surprise your guests, we will leave you with some essential tips that you should not ignore.


5 tips you should know

1. Choose good quality Chorizos

To come up with excellent grilled Chorizos, it is essential to buy noble Chorizos made from animals fed with a healthy diet. This is what you'll find throughout Argus Food's product portfolio.

It should be noted that Chorizos prepared with pork meat only usually have a higher amount of protein. Oppositely, those that combine beef and pork meat generally have a higher fat content.

2. To poke or not to poke?

Some BBQ experts consider that Chorizos should never be punctured before cooking. However, others think the opposite.

The reality is that neither of the two methods will lead to a dry Chorizo. However, by poking them they will obviously lose a bit of juiciness.

Therefore, if you like them very juicy, it is best to cook them without pricking them. But if you want them to have less fat in the end, you can prick them. You don't have to worry about them popping, as this doesn't usually happen.

3. Cooking temperature

When placing the sChorizos on the grill, the cooking temperature must be moderate. Additionally, it is very important that the Chorizos are about 20 cm above the flames.

So that you can make sure that you are cooking them at medium heat, you can place the palms of your hands about 10 cm above the grill. If you can leave them for 3 seconds without burning yourself, then the temperature is moderate.

4. Cooking time

To achieve optimal doneness you need to grill the Chorizo ​​for about 20 minutes on one side, then turn it over, and grill it for an additional 20 minutes.

5. How to serve and accompany them?

After removing the Chorizo ​​from the grill, you can serve it whole, cut into thick slices with the help of a sharp knife, or cut it in half to make a Choripán.

Chimichurri is one of the most used dressings to accompany grilled Chorizos. Although, to be fair, we are talking about a meal that can go well with infinite pairings.
