Boerewors burgers with mango atchar

There’s more options for boerewors than just grilling it. You can also turn it into your favourite boerie-burger. Top with spicy atchar (or chakalaka) and you have a meaty South African treat of note.

(serves 4, prep/cooking time: 30min)

•    600-800 g boerewors
•    30-45 ml olive oil
•    4 sesame buns, sliced in half horizontally
•    butter for spreading
•    fresh lettuce leaves
•    about 3 tomatoes, sliced
•    salt & pepper
•    about half a jar hot mango atchar (or hot chakalaka)
•    4 tablespoons mayonnaise

Remove the casing of the boerewors by cutting it open with a sharp small knife or scissors. Divide the wors mixture into 4 and shape into round patties, about 1,5-2cm thick. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan over high heat, then fry the patties on both sides until golden brown but still juicy in the middle (about 3-4 minutes a side) - or braai the patties over hot coals on a grill. Assemble the burgers: butter the sliced buns, then top with lettuce, tomatoes, salt & pepper, grilled pattie, mango atchar and mayonnaise. Serve hot with crispy potato chips, tomato sauce and mayo.

Serve with a glass of Spier Creative Block 3.
