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.
