We meet for the third and final part of our culinary journey across the continents.
As promised we will begin this journey from Africa:
The tomato bredie from South Africa
Stew prepared with meat and tomatoes, a delight from South Africa!
Known as “tomato bredie” this dish is a tasty specialty from Cape Town. South Africa is known for its premium meats, hence the reason why meat is the main ingredient of most of the traditional recipes from South Africa. In this dish, selected meat, often lamb, must have very little fat and more bone in order to be coated in flour before cooking. The meat is also accompanied by tomatoes, potatoes, bay leaves and Worcestershire sauce.
To all the carnivors, why not do a home exchange with a member from South Africa and devour a nice plate of tomato bredie?
