Move over chicken drumsticks! We’ve taken inspiration from our American cousins with fabulous slow-cook meats and utterly delicious sides to make up a collection of the ultimate summer braai recipes. The perfect way to celebrate gathering in the great outdoors.
It’s all about slow cooking... you can start these mains in the oven and finish on the braai for that crunchy, smoky flavour. Bonus: we’re using cheaper cuts like Spicy mustard wings and Bourbon-glazed beef short ribs. We've got a Pimped-up burger with added bacon bits, served on Brioche buns and delicious Slow cooked shoulder of lamb.
For something on the lighter side, we’ve got a Sourdough salad with peppers and chorizo and Barbecued king prawns with Thai dipping sauce.
Whatever you’re in the mood for this summer, browse through our summer braai recipe collection for tantalising ideas.
