New shirt for South African sport lovers

Posted in South Africa, Sport on August 2, 2011 by ribshackred

I was facing a problem deciding who to support this week-end… Bafana Bafana or the Bokke??????

So I took out my yellow Bafana Bafana shirt…

Then I took out my green and gold Bokke shirt… I still could not decide!?!?!?!?

Suddenly I had a brainwave…

I cut both shirts in half, length-wise and sewed the two halves together…


Now I have one shirt to support both… … and proudly displayed across the front…

Cure for anxious Bok supporter- Focus on the braai- Lamb(ie) chops with a (Gerhard) Mostert Sauce

Posted in Braai, Braai Recipes, Rib Shack Red, South Africa, Sport, Wine, Wine and dine on July 29, 2011 by ribshackred

Will it be “like lambs to the slaughter” in Sheep Country? Or Will Lambie kick some kiwi bud?

This weekend is the world’s best rugby team against South Africa’s second best rugby team. It is a daunting prospect so my solution is; focus on the braai not the game.

So what to braai with the big game?

Lamb(ie) chops with a (Gerhard) Mostert Sauce



Great lamb chops with Dijon mustard and garlic, along with herbs.

  • 4 to 6 large rib or loin chops
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • garlic powder
  • freshly ground pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley
  • Dijon mustard
  • wheat bran or plain bread
  • non-stick cooking spray

Method: Braai it your way!

Recommended Wine– RSR for sure!

On Father’s Day is time to bring out the big steaks for the braai. The bigger the better and I would go for thick- sliced T-Bone Steaks with a Garlic butter sauce.

Direction – sauce

In a small sauce pan add your butter, onions and garlic – saute till they are translucent.

Add the vinegar, Worcestershire and hot sauce – bring to a simmer.
