Our Boerewors Potjie Stew is a culinary embrace that marries the rich flavours of Boerewors with the comfort of a stew. Let's dive into the pot and savour every spoonful of tradition and taste!

Ingredients You'll Need:

  • 1kg Cumbrian Boerewors

  • 2 onions, chopped

  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced

  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 can diced tomatoes

  • 2 cups beef or vegetable broth

  • 1 cup red wine (optional)

  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Step 1: Brown the Boerewors In a large pot or Dutch oven, the journey begins with browning the Boerewors. As the sausage sizzles and browns, it imparts its rich flavour, setting the stage for a stew that's packed with character.

Step 2: Saute the Aromatics Once the Boerewors is browned, set it aside and sauté chopped onions, sliced carrots, and diced potatoes. The sizzle of the vegetables combines with the savoury remnants of the Boerewors, creating an aromatic melody.

Step 3: The Art of Seasoning Add minced garlic, dried thyme, and paprika to the pot. The herbs and spices lend layers of complexity, promising a stew that's not only comforting but also intriguing to the palate.

Step 4: Building the Base Pour in the diced tomatoes, beef or vegetable broth, and red wine if you opt for an extra layer of richness. Allow the pot to simmer, letting the flavours meld and the ingredients dance in harmony.

Step 5: The Boerewors Encore Return the browned Boerewors to the pot, letting it soak up the flavours of the stew. As it simmers alongside the vegetables and aromatic broth, it becomes an integral part of the story.

Step 6: Comfort in a Bowl After a patient simmer, your Boerewors Potjie Stew is ready to be savoured. Each spoonful carries the nostalgia of a cherished tradition and the promise of culinary comfort.

Step 7: Garnish and Enjoy Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with chopped fresh parsley. The pop of green adds a touch of freshness to the hearty stew, inviting you to take that first satisfying bite.

Indulge in the richness of flavours and the warmth of tradition with our Boerewors Potjie Stew. It's more than a meal – it's a journey that honours the past while celebrating the present.
