Spanish sherry lends itself very well as a cooking ingredient, "Fino" or Fino de Jerez as its most commonly known is usually enjoyed with a little Spanish ham or tapas in a small glass. Amoroso, another type of Spanish sherry is sweeter and packs a real flavour punch in the kitchen. You don't need much either and for slow roasts amoroso punches its flavour inside the meat resulting a lovely Spanish flavour to beef and pork. This recipe uses a simple pork joint stuffed with herbs and garlic then slow cooked for three hours in a casserole.
