Because it is convenient to have a braai, almost every South African family
has a braai nook at home, whether it is a built-in braai place,
indoors or outdoors, or a portable braai.South Africa has long summer
days, filled with sunshine, therefore South Africans are an
outdoor nation, spending their holidays outside and in the sun, and a
braai with good South African boerewors is the ideal way to have
a healthy meal without any fuss and still enjoy yourself and relax with
family and friends.
6 Medium Potatoes - Peeled (and milk and butter for mash)
500g lean mince
1 onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
125g brown mushrooms, sliced
1 beef stock cube
1/4 cup water
10ml sunflower oil for frying
1TBS garlic and lemon mix
50g tomato paste
1/2 cup grated cheese to sprinkle on top of mash
Peel the potatoes, slice in half and boil until soft.
Fry the onion in the cooking oil until soft. Add the mince, garlic &
lemon mix, stock cube and water to the onions. Once the mince is
sealed and has a nice brown colour to it, add the mushrooms, tomato paste,
salt, rosemary, thyme and oregano - Mix together well.
Allow to simmer for 5-10mins. Once everything is cooked, add the mixture
to a round casserole dish.
Mash the potatoes, add some milk and butter to create a soft even consistency
(it should not be runny).
Now spread the mash potato evenly over the mince mixture and then sprinkle
with cheese (this is optional but tastes delicious!)
Place the dish under the grill for a few minutes and allow cheese to
melt and turn golden brown and slightly crispy...Yummy!
