Very nice recipe. Good to see some South African recipes on here. Keep up the good work.

Nice. However, being South African, I don't use stew meat for kebabs (Sosaties). A good grade of either lamb/chicken/beef is normaly used. I also add a touch of vinegar, brown sugar, curry to taste and garlic. Enjoy



It is really good to see classic South African recipes. Very few people know what type of food South Africans eat. Having left south africa 2 years ago, it is so difficult to find recipes that I have forgotten. Thank you !! :)
