Win a Super Lamb and Super Rugby tickets

Posted in Competitions, Super 15 on February 22, 2012 by ribshackred

You could stand a chance to win a super braai lamb and two Super Rugby tickets.

With summer and the rugby season in full swing, we have an excuse to braai even more excessively. What’s rugby without a braai and what’s a braai without rugby? The answer is nothing. So that’s why we’re bringing both together in this super competition. We will be giving away these super prizes to three people during March and April.

  • 1 green sweet pepper, de-seeded and chopped

What’s your call on this picture?

I think a braai with friends can maybe slip-in as “not on this list”

Sosatie and Steak? Yes, please

Posted in Braai, Braai Recipes, Food on February 2, 2012 by ribshackred

It’s always ‘n good time to braai, but with the summer sun burning – We have to braai even more.

Here’s a fantastic sosatie recipe for you.


1 cup of chopped Onion
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup Lemon juice
1/4 cup Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Mustard
1 medium sized Sirloin steak, cut into cubes
1 large Green pepper, cut in pieces
2 medium Onions, cut in quarters
2 medium Tomatoes, cut in quarters

Heat the oil and chopped onion in a saucepan. Take it off the hotplate and stir in the lemon juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and mustard.  Pour it over your meat and vegetable mixture and then allow it to cool and place it in the fridge to marinade overnight.

The next day when you are ready for the braai, skewer the meat, green pepper, onion and tomatoes and keep the marinade.

Braai the sosaties for five minutes on each side, while brushing them frequently with the marinade.

As a variation, and if you like hot food, why not try adding crushed chilies to the marinade.
