A Mexican Braai with Bafana‘s big game

What will you braai on Friday when the Bafana Bafana takes on Mexico?

I think that special occasions calls for special braais so for the big game on Friday what about a braai with a Mexican twist.

Mexican Grilled Steak

Servings: Can’t say – I don’t know how hungry you will be

Recommended wine – Let me think… Rib Shack Red

Side dish – “Gooi sommer a mielie” on the braai.


  •  1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro or coriander
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • beef flank steak
  • garlic clove, crushed


(Braai it your way, but here is a suggestion)

Cut both sides of the beef steaks with diamond patterns about 3mm deep and places them in a shallow dish. Mix remaining ingredients together in a small bowl and pour over the beef. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours, turning the beef occasionally.

Heat the grill and put the steaks on. Cook for about 5 minutes per side and remove from heat. Cut the beef into thin slices across grain at a slanted angle and serve.
