No monkeys were harmed in the making of this sauce. So level up your next Boerie rolls, burgers or steak, with this delicious and easy home made sauce.
YOU WILL NEED
Biltong Canada Traditional Boerewors
6 Hotdog rolls
FOR THE SAUCE
1 large onion
2 Tbl butter
2 Tbl olive oil
2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1 cup tomato sauce (Ketchup for non Saffas)
1 cup chutney (only Mrs Balls)
½ cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tsp chilli flakes
A splash of water if needed
HOW TO MAKE THEM
1. In a fireproof cast iron or fireproof pot on the fire, fry the onion in the butter and oil for a few minutes until translucent
2. Add all the other ingredients for the sauce, except for the water, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring fairly often to make sure it doesn’t burn.
If the pot runs dry and the sauce is too thick for your liking or starts to burn, add a little bit of water.
3. After 15 minutes of simmering, the sauce is ready to serve. You can now keep it warm on the side of the Braai until the boerewors is braaied.
4. Now it’s time to braai the wors. The aim is to break or pierce it as little as you can and have as juicy an end-product as possible.
5. Place a piece or two of boerewors in each hotdog roll and top with a few spoonfuls of monkeygland sauce.
