What to braai with the ODI?

The cricket was horrendous as the Proteas managed to throw away a cruising victory. I nearly choked (no pun intended) on my chop as the last wickets tumbled.

But the series is now alive and I’m looking forward to the next match in Cape Town.

Being bit superstitions, I’m not going to use the same braai recipe for the next match. Who knows,  maybe my curry chops jinxed the Proteas.  

So for Tuesday’s ODI  I’m going to braai a steak. The steak must have a red wine base as the game is played in the Cape and wine is part and parcel of the Cape of Good Hope.

Let’s hope it is not the Cape of Choke for the Proteas!

Here is the recipe

Steak with Red Wine Marinade


  • 4 – 3cm thick steaks (Rump or Sirloin will be the best)
  • 1 cup dry red wine –  Use Rib Shack Red  and the other 2 cups in the bottle is yours- You deserve it.
  • 2 teaspoons garlic herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper


Place steaks in a large food storage bag. Add remaining ingredients. Marinate for 2 to 4 hours, turning occasionally to keep the steaks coated with liquid.

Braai it your way!
