Rib Shack RedIf you’re not sure what to braai, here’s a great spiced garlic and herb rump recipe. Try with some company and with a glass of Rib Shack Red.


  • 1 tsp milled pepper
  • 2 tsp whole coriander seeds
  • 3 ml dried chilli flakes
  • 3 medium granulated garlic
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 2 sprigs rosemary – plus extra to make a brush
  • 1 kg bulk rump steak – lazy-aged
  • 2 cup vegetable oil – for deep-frying
  • 8 large potatoes – peeled and cut into thick chips
  • 1 pinch salt and ground pepper


Place all rub ingredients into a pestle and mortar (or use a heavy bowl and a rolling pin) and grind until well combined.

Toss steak in rub and leave to marinate for at least an hour.

Heat 4cm oil in a saucepan and fry chips in batches until crispy. Drain on kitchen paper and season.

Cook steaks over extremely hot coals until done to your liking and season.

Leave steak to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving with chips.
