If you are a dude, living on your own, you probably have boerewors in your freezer right now. So dudes, this one is for you. Surprise the love of your life, or your buds to a delicious dinner. They won’t believe it!
I get to experience the amazing meat products from Biltong@za each month. This time around I got to play with some good old boerewors. Kameelhout Boerewors to be exact. And they have plenty. Check out all their meat products!
Boerewors has to be as authentically South African as you can get. Everyone loves boerewors. And this spicy meaty sausage is damn tasty and versatile. The best way is to enjoy this Kameelhout Boerewors on the braai with the rest of his braai buddies, like steak and chops. But on its own, the humble boerewors shines in this amazing dish of Boerewors and Roasted Tomato Risotto.
It is amazing what you can do with a pack of Biltong@za boerewors. Dust off those aprons, dudes. Also, risotto freezes like a dream – add this one to your Freezer Friendlies list! Cheers!
