The barbarian braai- Pat Lamb(ie) chops

The Springbok C-team will take on the best of Australasia as they will face the  star studded Barbarians on Twickenham.

So what to braai with this (mis)match is a tricky affair. You can braai the Barbarian way and do a “no-braai tools braai” or have a cutlery-free barbaric meal. This is maybe too messy so what about a Lamb(ie) chop prepared in  the Natalian curry style.

Pat Lambie ,new kid on the block,  was probably the find of the season and played a big role in the Sharks’ Currie Cup winning campaign.  

So my Saturday braai will be  red wine and  curry lamb(ie) chops.

Why red wine with the sauce?… Because I can.


Recipe: Pat Lamb(ie) Curry and Red wine chops


1.5kg braai lamb chops

1  tbsp Pako curry paste (or make your own curry powder mixture)

1 sliced onions

2 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

2 cups vinegar

1 cups  red wine – Rib Shack Red of course

3 tbsp apricot jam



Excluding the chops – Mix all remaining ingredients together in a pot and bring to the boil, lower the temperature and cook slowlyfor about 8 minutes. Allow to cool.

Pour over the chops and marinade overnight .

Braai it your way and enjoy the game!
