The spirit of heritage

Heritage Day on 24 September is all about celebrating sunny South Africa, and what better way to do that than with a local-booze-infused braai? Add some local flavour to your braai day with this unique recipe:  




2 tsp curry powder

1 tbsp tomato paste

340ml beer

2 tbsp white wine vinegar

2 tbsp treacle sugar

1 tsp salt

1 onion, diced

1 clove garlic, chopped

¼ cup olive oil

500-600g thick boerewors



  1. Fry curry powder in a dry pan for 1 minute. Add tomato paste and stir. De-glaze the pan by adding beer and white wine vinegar.
  2. Bring to a boil then add treacle sugar, salt, diced onion and chopped garlic. Boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add olive oil. Let the marinade cool down slightly.
  3. Place a pack of thick boerewors into a sealable plastic bag or container. Cover with the beer marinade and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Braai boerewors over hot coals (or on the gas if you’re in a hurry) and baste regularly with marinade or cook in the marinade in a preheated oven of 200°C.
