Pork Neck Steaks – deliciously tender!

Posted on January 4, 2018 by in pork

Pork Neck Steaks

Pork Neck Steaks, my favorite cut of pork. Of course other than a deliciously crispy pork belly, but pork belly does not work so well on the grill or braai, unless you make Pork Belly Kebabs. Pork Neck Steaks on the other hand, always delivers on taste and they are always tender. You can find […]

Lamb Pinwheels

The Lamb Pinwheels are a breeze to make if you know and respect your new found best friend….. the butcher. In my case, my new found butcher is Klein Merino. Klein Merino is in Beaufort West, but they have an extensive delivery service into Cape Town. So orders in by Monday and meat delivered by […]

Lipsmacking Lamb Ribs

Lipsmacking Lamb ribs made with my all purpose spice mix, definitely a winner every time. Eating these Lipsmacking Lamb Ribs, you need little more than a wedge of lemon and a warm cloth (jammer lappie) to get the dripping fat off your face and hands. Yesterday I posted a recipe for my All Purpose Spice […]

pork twisters

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 […]

Grilled Steak

Grilled steak for two is what you eat when the kids are out and you are having a date night! I am a very involved mom, right, hovering over the kiddos, caring for their every need. ( I know, I need therapy!) I like having them around, so I was not at all prepared for […]

Grilled Corn Salad

Grilled Corn, dripping with butter, mmmm! Must be one of my favorite things to enjoy at a braai or barbeque. I love the sweet butter crunch as I bite into it and the smoky flavor is very hard to beat. Grilled corn can be a bit messy to eat so we keep it for family […]

Roosterkoek forms such a big part of our South African culture, that more and more, I find them  at festivals and markets …….  adorned with syrup, cheese, scrambled egg and bacon! Roosterkoek is literally pieces of bread dough that has […]

dried fruit

Dried fruit chutney on smokey pork ribs is on my menu tonight and I must confess it has been on our menu quite a few times since the braai season started! Dried fruit is so often associated with winter, yet even in the midst of summer, it is hard to imagine Christmas without the joys […]
