Txistorra is a type of fast-cure sausage from the Basque Country. It can be considered a special type of chorizo. It is made of minced pork, or a mixture of minced pork and beef, is encased in lamb tripe, and has a fat content that varies between 70 and 80%. The sausage is flavoured with garlic, salt, and paprika, which gives it a bright red colour. It is usually baked, fried or grilled and often accompanies other dishes, sometimes as part of pintxos.
