Delicious Spanish meat recipes

On this page we will list all of our Spanish meat recipes.

Spain has a great variety of meat available and the amount consumed varies from region to region - with the inland and mountainous areas seeing the highest consumption. In many of the coastal regions, seafood and vegetables are consumed in much higher quantities but meat still plays an important role in the diet and is often combined with seafood in many dishes.

As the site is focused on the healthier aspects of Spanish cooking and follows the principles of the healthy Mediterranean diet, the balance of our recipe lists will reflect this; with a higher percentage of seafood and vegetable recipes and a well-balanced selection of delicious meat recipes.

Perhaps the most famous meat in Spain is the cured ham known as jamón. This dry-cured ham is produced in several regions of Spain and can range in price and quality. The two primary types are serrano and ibérico with ibérico being the highest quality. Ibérico de Bellota is the most expensive and is made exclusively from free-roaming acorn-fed Iberian pigs.

Another Spanish meat product famous around the world is chorizo; a versatile spicy sausage flavoured with pimentón that can be purchased fresh, smoked or cured and is often just sliced and eaten or cooked in stews. There are many other popular types of sausage in Spain including androlla, botifarra, botillo, embutido, fuet, longaniza, morcón, morcilla and sobrassada.
