South African Bbq Recipes

We all know about barbecues and the great Australian Barbie. But only South Africans can differentiate between a BBQ and the great SA braai (or braaivleis)! While all barbecues have a lot in common, we have decided to share some great South African BBQ recipes with you so that you can test for yourselves whether this statement is in fact true. A braai is of course the South African word for barbecue, and so South African BBQ recipes are what it takes to make an SA braai special. But it doesn't matter where in the world you live, you too can use the South African BBQ recipes we have collected for you to serve up for your family and friends. ENJOY!

In South Africa there is a school of thought that believes that the braai is a uniquely South African institution. To understand the concept, you need to know that an Afrikaans : English dictionary (braai being an Afrikaans word) defines this word as roast, fry, grill or scorch! This is of course all possible when cooking over the coals outside. The dictionary also defines a couple of other related words including braaivleis which means to roast meat (vleis is meat); and braaivleisaand which is loosely translated as a "braaivleis" or social barbecue.

Trying desperately to read between the lines you will probably be wondering what could possibly be different between a good old Aussie Barbie and a traditional South African braai. While every BBQ has common factors, there are some really great traditional and contemporary South African BBQ recipes that we have dug up. These range from cooking good old boerewors (or farmer's sausage) over the coals, to cooking stews in a traditional African pot to produce what is affectionately known as potjiekos (pot food).

We have also found some great spit-roast recipes and recipes that you can use to BBQ fresh fish. You can make your own bread on the Barbie using the traditional African pot, and even create some really great puds.

There's something for everyone, so light your fire and get started with some of the very best South African BBQ recipes.
