    Ever since my brother in law dated a South African lass, this has been one of my  favorite grilling sausages. It's a beef/pork combo flavored primarily with clove, pepper and vinegar. Traditionally it is not linked (i do it for convenience) rather it grilled in a coil. If like cloves you gotta give this one a go.


    The recipe is Len Poli's

    That is a good tasting sausage. We made 2 batches this winter and my share is gone. We used this

    My brother is going Africa in May and is going to round up some more recipes.

    Linking them is a better way to make them as flipping those coils is a pain. Nice to see someone else making Boerewors.

    Sure, you can find a heap of recipes at Len Poli's site...google it. Here's what i used;

    2.5kg Pork

    1.5kg Beef, Lean

    14g x Salt

    12g x Cloves, ground (i used 6g..plenty for me)

    12g x Nutmeg, ground

    12g x Pepper, cracked ( i used ground white)

    11g x Cure#1

    60ml x Vinegar ( i used red wine vinegar)

    30ml x Worcester sauce.

    the key to grilling these is med heat only and dont prick them or they will come out dry.

    Have fun

    Thanks Woodcutter....i found a bunch of other Boerewors recipes on Biltongmaker.com ..worth checking out. I'll do the coil every now and then if i've got a crowd coming around. But you're right..it's a biatch to flip.

    If you get some nice authentic recipes please share
