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.
