Braai with an Uruguayan twist


On Wednesday Bafana Bafana plays in a must win game against Uruguay and to celebrate the occasion I will braai something the Uruguayan way.

OK, it must be stated that Uruguayans are meat lovers and their cuisine is much like the Argentineans. They love beef and their form of braai is called Asado which is a great way to prepare food.

But we know how to braai  (the SA way)  so instead of doing an Asado what about braaing Steak with a Uruguayan sauce.

Uruguayan Barbecue Sauce


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 8 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (or 1 tbls. fresh oregano, chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tbls. fresh thyme, chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons hot paprika, to taste (or cayenne)
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper

Directions for sauce

–          Mix the oil, vinegar, garlic, parsley, oregano, thyme and paprika in a jar with a lid and season to taste with salt and pepper.

–          Secure the lid and shake to mix thoroughly.

–          Let stand for 2 to 3 hours, and shake again before serving or using as a marinade.

Directions for braai

 You’re on your own buddy. Marinate the steaks with the sauce and braai it your way.
