DENNY BILTONG PASTA POTJIE

Beef

While doing our road trip we realised the most popular snack next to the road is definitely biltong. All shapes and sizes and types. Biltong. It is a great snack, salty, full of protein and will keep you going for a bit. We collected so much biltong along the way, we thought, let us make the world famous biltong potjie! Another bonus is that all the ingredients are easy to get in small towns where there may only be one shop.

BLESBOK STROGANOFF

Venison

Originally from Russia, this version of the old classic is right at home here in the Democratic Republic of Braai. To prepare a great beef Stroganoff you need the right ingredients and you need to follow the correct method. The most important procedure is to flash-fry thin strips of steak so that they have the taste of having endured intense heat, without completely drying out. It is best to do this is in your large fireproof pan, as there is no better way to truly generate lots of heat than with the licking flames of a proper wood fire.

CHEESE POTBREAD

Bread

When you make this bread, don’t be shy to mix it up, We used all the bits of cheese left over in the fridge and chopped and mixed it together. Feel free to add anything that you think will go good with your cheese combo. Use the bread to soak up the cheese, almost like a fondue.

BIGGEST KING BURGER

Beef

While we did our research about the truth behind what goes into a Burger King Wopper, we found that the way they build and layer the ingredients is a big part of the recipe and adds to the taste of the burger eating experience itself. This time we made the biggest wopper ever! 1 size serves all! To make your job easier, buy ready made dough at your local super market if you dont feel like making it from scratch

Bolognese Quesadillas

Beef

I used Denny Bolognese sauce for this recipe, but you can always just use left over bolognese, or make it from scratch. This was one of my favourite meals that we prepared on the TV show. It is so easy and extremely delicious.

GNOCCHI WITH BACON AND CHEESE SAUCE

Pasta, Pork, Sauces

This meal works very well as a substantial starter for a fancy and expansive braai meal, where the mains would be meat served with a side of vegetables or salad. However, it is a delicious recipe, quite rich, and robust enough to stand on its own as a main meal, which is how I usually enjoy it.
