How to make it

  • PREPARING THE POTJIE
  • Clean the inside of the Potjie thoroughly
  • Rub the inside with a couple of gloves of garlic (if you don't like garlic don't do it then!)
  • Make a fire of charcoal, briquettes or wood (a gas fire may be used but does little for the ambiance!)
  • METHOD
  • Heat the butter in the pot
  • Stir fry the onions until tender
  • Move the onions to one side and place the meat next to the onions
  • Using a large spoon place the onions on top of the meat
  • Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes until the meat renders its own juice
  • Place the potatoes on top of the meat without letting them touch the side of the pot
  • Layer carrots and then the courgettes around and on top of the potatoes
  • Mix 125 ml of the stock with the salt, celery salt, worcestershire sauce, soya sauce, lemon juice and thyme (or rosemary) and add to the potjie
  • Cover and simmer for about 90 minutes
  • Use the remaining 125 ml of meat stock, mixed with the gravy and soup powder to thicken the liquid in the pot
  • Simmer thoroughly for 10-20 minutes
  • Serve with rice or couscous and a salad or vegetables
  • Serves 4-6 people
  • DO NOT STIR
