POT ROAST CHICKEN

Chicken

For this version of braaied chicken you’re going the decadent extra mile. You’re not just braaing it on a grid or baking it in your man-oven, you’re roasting it in your potjie.

BEAN BOLOGNESE

Vegetarian

My family started making spaghetti Bolognese on the fire during camping trips in Botswana and Namibia when I was a teenager. The secret to a great Bolognese sauce is to simmer it over low coals for quite a while.

FRIED RICE WITH PORK AND MUSHROOMS

Pork

This recipe is a great idea for left over rice at the end of your weekend braai’s. You can also use left over braai meat that you chop, instead of the pork mince. Add any vegetables that you have available and create this delicious potjie at home.

LENTIL BOBOTIE

Vegetarian

Bobotie is a South African classic and an important part of our culinary heritage. It’s also one of my favourite meals, but this doesn’t make me special: everybody loves bobotie. As with many other South African cult hits, the best and original way is in a potjie on a braai fire. I believe it’s your moral duty to perfect the art of making bobotie. It’s a great way to show off when you cook for visitors to South Africa. And here you have a version that is vegetarian.

JAN BRAAI PIZZA

Bread

This will probably become one of your favourite go-to recipes. Whether you are craving it, want to impress guests, or are on a road trip and want to do a quick scenic and hassle-free braai, this is a nice trick to have up your sleeve.

BANANA AND BACON BRAAIBROODJIE

Bread

As we all know the braaibroodjie is and will always be the best braai item in the world. There is always something new and different to put on top of your braaibroodjie. While visiting a banana farm, I thought these bananas deserve to be the star on a braaibroodjie.

CHOCOLATE FONDANT WITH MACADAMIAS

Dessert

There is a medical reason why you should eat chocolate. The scent of the chocolate increases theta brain waves, which induces relaxation. We all know how vitally important it is to destress, relax and feel good about your life. And this is why you and your loved ones should consume the baked chocolate potjie as often as possible. It will make you a better person.
