CapeCook - Rustic  South African Food


2 Kg mutton stew meat

2 Tins whole peeled tomatoes (Or fresh tomatoes peeled)

4 Carrots chopped

3 Onions chopped

3 cloves garlic crushed

4 to 5 potatoes quartered

½ tsp dried chilies

Worchestire sauce

Hand full fresh basil chopped

Olive oil

Salt and pepper


Fry onions in a little olive oil until soft, add the meat and brown all over, add a little Worchestire sauce as well as the carrots and the garlic, fry another 3 or 4 minutes. Flavor with salt and pepper and add the dried chilies. Add the tomatoes, bring to the boil, bring down the heat and simmer until the meat begins to soften, add the potatoes and simmer uncovered until the potatoes are soft and all of the tomatoes have cooked away. Add the basil and stir through, simmer for another minute or two. Serve with rice.

A Pinot Noir will be perfect with the acidity of the tomatoes according to those who are suppose to know, but I am all for drinking whatever you feel like.
