Laughing at our misfortune

Posted in South Africa, Sport on March 29, 2011 by ribshackred

A Danish proverb –“It is a great art to laugh at your own misfortune”-

OK so I’ll try to laugh of the misfortune of the Proteas.

We might be perceived as chokers but at least we are not extremely crazy (mal),  like this Pakistani player.

Lamb Ribs for the big game’s braai

Posted in Braai, Braai Recipes, Food, South Africa, Sport on March 24, 2011 by ribshackred

There are more than 40 million sheep in New Zealand and less than 4.4 million people. That is a 9-1 sheep to person ratio. This implies that the appropriate braai recipe for tomorrow’s World Cup Cricket quarter final must be a lamb recipe

Here is a great New Zealand lamb spare rib braai recipe

Ingredients

Allow 4-6 lamb spareribs per person

For the Marinade/Glaze

  •  3 Tbsp oil
  •  4 Tbsp marmalade
  •  Juice and rind of 4 lemons
  •  Dash Worcestershire sauce
  •  4 Tbsp soy sauce
  •  2 Tbsp tomato sauce

Method

Combine the marinade ingredients in a clean saucepan and warm over a gentle heat until syrupy. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool completely. Marinate the ribs for 1-2 hours. Braaie the spareribs over a moderate heat for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked to your liking, turning frequently and basting with any spare marinade during cooking, to glaze. Serve hot or cold.
