There’s no need to add oil. Chrorizo de Cebu will cook in its own oil.
You can cover the pan if you like. Just make sure to wait until the water is gone. This is also a good time to take a pair of scissors to cut each chorizo. Just be careful.

A Super Yummy Tandem

Once the water has evaporated, the pieces of chorizo are pretty much cooked already. In case you want yours a bit toasted, you can add a little cooking oil to fry the pieces of chorizo.

It really depends on the kind of texture you’re looking for. One thing is for sure; the toasted parts of the chorizo taste good. They become chewy and it just goes so well with rice.

 

This is definitely a yummy tandem. The only thing that’s missing is the puso.

It would have been perfect if our Chorizo de Cebu was paired with some puso, the Cebuano rice that’s beautifully wrapped in woven coconut leaves. We just had to settle for some garlic fried rice but the Chorizo de Cebu was still so good.
