Pork Twisters all sticky and sweet is my contribution to National Braai Day 2016.

We love pork twisters – they are different, not fussy at all to make and they are rather funky and different. Of course I love a good chop and a delicious mature rib-eye. I would even settle for a good burger on #braaiday, but so does everybody else, I wanted to give it a twist…… a pork twist!

I use pork fillet to make my pork twisters, but the belly is a good cut and also the leg. Pork fillet is relatively cheap and needs very little trimming and preparing. So making the twisters, is a breeze, exactly what you need on #braaiday.

National Braai Day is so part of our heritage and to celebrate our South African heritage, what is better than to do it with another iconic South African brand….. ALL GOLD. I am in trouble if my husband or children cannot find the All Gold. The best part is that ALL GOLD Tomato Sauce is preservative, colourant and thickener free?

The team at All Gold made a marinade that is truly South African. Why? Well, your favourite Tomato Sauce is in the mix. Your pork twisters should be marinated in this mouth-watering mix for three or four hours before you intend braaing. Your guests will come back for more, so be sure to prepare enough!

How to make your pork twisters

I use two pork fillets that will give you 8 twisters. Cut each pork fillet in half, then take each half of the meat and half that lenghtwise. To make the meat thinner and easier to twist. Now take each piece of meat and cut it in three strips, but on the one end, do not cut right through. Like you would cut pastry for a koeksister. Now plait the meat and secure the lose ends with a toothpick. Marinade as indicated and braai on medium coals.

Mix all the ingredients together. Marinate your twisters for 3-4 hours before you braai. You can also use this sauce on chicken, ribs, lamb or steak!

      Sorry for my late reply……. 30 – 35 minutes, depending on how thick the pork fillets are.

    For how long can the marinade sauce be kept in the fridge?

      I would imagine at least 1 month, there is nothing that can really go off in the ingredients!
