Braai with a taste of Wales

The Boks take on Wales in Cardiff and it seems that it going to be a battle royal upfront.  I had my own battle royal to find a braai recipe with a Welsh influence. 

Welsh cuisine is not a clear cut thing and this is what Wikipedia had to say:

Welsh cuisine has influenced, and been influenced, by other British cuisine. Beef and dairy cattle are raised widely. Sheep farming is extensive in the country and lamb is the meat traditionally associated with Welsh cooking, particularly in dishes such as roast lamb with fresh mint sauce.

So I’m going to braai  lamb chops with a mint sauce.



  • 4 lamb chops of about 175g each (depend on your party)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the marinade

  • Juice of ½ lemon and zest
  • 1 clove chopped garlic
  • 1 spring onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil


Mix up all the marinade ingredients in a shallow dish, throw in the lamb steaks, cover and leave in the refrigerator overnight.

Braai it your way!
