Steak braai with a taste of Scotland

The Boks plays Scotland tomorrow and there are a few interesting braai recipes possibilities.

Scotland is not known for their lovely braai weather. In fact they say last year’s Scottish summer was on a Wednesday.

But they love their Whisky and are famous for the Angus cattle (Beef) so it would be appropriate to braai a steak with a whisky marinate.

But first some useless info about Whisky vs Whiskey.

Much is made of the word’s two spellings, whisky and whiskey. Today, the spelling whisky (plural whiskies) is generally used for whiskies distilled in Scotland, Wales, Canada, and Japan, while whiskey (plural whiskeys) is used for the whiskeys distilled in Ireland and the United States.

Recipe – Whisky steaks on the braai


  • 6x 250g sirloin steaks
  • 1/2 cup Whisky
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 /2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 tablespoons mustard

Combine all ingredients except the steaks. Mix well. Place steaks in a large resealable bag. Pour marinade over top. Seal and refrigerate for several hours.

Braai it your way!
