It’s all about the braai


Beef Fillet  stuffed with spicy sausage and Patatas Bravas

Patatas Bravas


Ingredients:

Method:

Cook the potatoes for about 10 minutes in salted water until they’re almost tender. Drain the spuds and allow to cool slightly.

Cut the potatoes in half, the bigger ones in quarters.

Heat the oil in a frying pan, and fry the potatoes, turn often until golden brown on all sides.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan, and stir through. Fry for another 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently.


Fried Aubergine


Ingredients:


Method:

Sprinkle the aubergine slices with salt and let it stand for about 30 minutes to extract the water. Rinse the salt from the aubergines and pat dry.

Drizzle the aubergine with olive oil and fry in a griddle pan until cooked. Remove from pan and set aside.


Beef fillet stuffed with Spicy Sausage


Ingredients:


Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.

Remove sausage from casing and add paprika, peri-peri, cumin and oregano to the sausage meat and mix through.

Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan, add the sausage mixture and fry until light brown. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Open the fillet and grind fresh black pepper on what will be the inside of the fillet once it is rolled. Place the sausage mixture on top of the fillet and roll tightly by tying about 8 pieces of butchers’ string around the fillet to ensure it will hold its form.

Add the butter to a frying pan over high heat. When the butter starts to bubble put the fillet in the pan and fry on all sides until just brown. Then place the fillet in the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes.

Remove the fillet and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Cut into medallions and add a little salt on top of each one. Serve with the aubergines and patatas bravas.


Bon appetit,
