Braai Time! (or, first of my Namibian food pictures)
The other night at Okambara Bush Camp it was Braai time (pronounced Bri, not brie). It’s Afrikaans for ‘barbeque’ or ‘grill’.
The food at Okambara is exceptionally good and I hope to take a whole bunch of spices back home and have someone cook some of these delicious dishes for me! (Notice *I* am not doing the cooking in that scenario 🙂 )
Here is a marinade recipe I got from a web site:
MARINADE FOR MEAT OR CHICKEN
2 cups chutney
¼ cup tomato sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp crushed garlic
1. Mix all ingredients together and marinade the meat or chicken overnight (in the fridge).
2. Don’t put the meat on the braai / grill when the fire is too hot as you burn the outside without cooking it. Vincent has a 6 second rule: Hold your hand over the coals at grill height and if you can hold it there for 6 seconds (before you have to pull it away due to the heat) then the coals are just right to start braaiing / grilling.
