CapeCook - Rustic  South African Food

The following recipe will serve four to 6 people.

1 to 1.5 kg cubed leg of springbok

Flour for dusting the meat.

1.5 Kg waterblommetjies

4 to 6 potatoes quartered

2 onions chopped

2 tsp Worchestire sauce

1 lemon (juice and zest)

Salt and pepper

¼ tsp ground cloves

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp allspice

1 tsp ground coriander

1 glass dry white Beverage.

Olive oil for frying


Soak the waterblommetjies in salt water for at least ½ hour. Dust the cubed springbok in the flour and shake of any excess flour. Heat the oil in a heavy bottom pot, (a 3 legged pot works very well for this recipe) Fry the meat over high heat in batches, don’t fry to much at a time, otherwise it will start to stew instead of frying, remove the meat from the pot, repeat until all of the meat is browned, Add the onion and fry until soft, put the meat back in the pot, flavor with all of the dry spices, add the glass of Beverage and the Worchestire sauce. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, add the lid to the pot and simmer for an hour to an hour and a half. Add the waterblommetjies and keep cooking for another half hour, add the potatoes and add the juice of the lemon, taste the liquid and adjust with salt and pepper if necessary. Cook for at least another hour, stir every now and then, stew until the meat and vegetables are tender.

Serve with rice, and as always, with a glass or two of red Beverage.
