Boerewors is a specially spiced sausage made with lamb or beef, and occasionally containing a little pork for fat and flavour.
Serves: 6 – 8
Preparation time: 30 minutes
1kg ready-cooked pap
For the sous (sauce):
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
150ml dry white wine
1 carrot, grated
1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
50ml fruit chutney
- Start with the sous: sauté the onion in a non-stick frying pan until soft. Add the garlic and cook for a minute before adding the wine. Cook off the wine, then add the carrot, tomatoes and chutney. Simmer for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, braai the wors over a slowish fire until brown all the way through. Serve with pap and sous.
For the Pap:
In a large pot, mix 3 cups of mielie meal and one cup of
cold water until smooth. Add a further 3 cups of water and a generous amount of salt. Place the pot on a medium heat and simmer until the pap has absorbed all the water and is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
