1 ½ tbsp.
OK Housebrand Sugar
OK Housebrand Oil
Spices of choice
OK Housebrand Chutney
OK Housebrand Sugar
Hot Dog Rolls
Pack of OK Choice Boerewors
• Cook the Caramelised Onions
Chop 3 onions into thin slices and crush a garlic clove.
Melt a tbsp. of butter in a pan and add onions, garlic and sugar. Stir the ingredients well until everything is coated in butter.
Place a lid on the pan and leave to cook for 20 – 25 minutes on medium-heat. Once the onions are soft and golden brown, remove from the heat.
• Fry the Crispy Onion Toppings
Chop 1 onion into small slices and toss in flour and your chosen spices. Paprika, Chilli, or BBQ seasoning will work well here along with salt and pepper for a delicious savoury coating.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the coated onions for about 2 – 4 minutes, or until crispy.
Set these aside to use as toppings later.
• Make a Quick Tomato Boerie Relish
Dice 1 onion and tomatoes.
Heat oil in a pan and add onions and 1 crushed garlic clove to fry over medium-heat.
Add the diced tomato, sugar, Worcestershire Sauce, and chutney. Stir through and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Let this mixture simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Braai the Boerewors
Prepare your braai until you have a decent amount of coals, you can use firewood or charcoal for this. The best boerewors is always braaied over gentle coals.
Place the boerewors in your grid with some space in between so they don’t stick together. Braai for 8 minutes, turning your grid every 2 minutes for the perfect juicy wors.
A hack to check if your wors is cooked is to break a piece off. If the casing snaps or pops easily, the wors is ready.
Let it rest for 2 – 3 minutes.
Time to assemble
Slice buns lengthways and butter.
Spoon in a layer of the boerie relish and rest the boerewors atop.
Spoon over some caramelised onions and sprinkle the crispy onion toppings over for that extra crunch.
