Rojões Minho's Style*
Wash the potatoes and boil them with the skin
Potatoes, pork chunks,beef chunks,
Portuguese Sausage( From the tongue)
Pork blood, wine and Bicas, cilantro and cominhos
Bicas are made from Wheat and corn flour ,salt,water and pork blood and are named in different way all over Minho (north od Portugal
We don't use "redanho"- that is a fat from the female pork. Traditionally the meat and bicas are fried in the "unto" that's another kind of pork fat. We use Olive Oil.
Traditionally Vinho Verde accompanies Rojoes ...but you can use your preference. We like Alentejo and Douro.
Made differently in all Minho area...but the basics are the same,
