Traditional South African Boerewors

Boerewors is a traditional South African sausage made of beef chuck and pork shoulder. It is spiced with a special blend of Boerewors Spices and then ground together in a meat grinder. A thicker sausage casing is used when making Boerewors to ensure that the sausage stays juicy during the cooking process. It can be cooked on a stove top or baked in an oven, but the number one way we like to cook it, is at a traditional South African braai (BBQ).

Using my own blend of spices, with 2/3 beef chuck and 1/3 pork shoulder, guarantees delicious, juicy Boerewors, that will make you come back for more. I have never used pre-ground beef. When choosing my meats, I always go for the roasts, which I personally cut into cubes small enough to go into my meat grinder/sausage stuffer. It works every time. Hog natural casings works the best for Boerewors, which is freely available these days at just about any grocery store.

Boerewors rolls are very popular in South Africa. A slice of bread works just as well when you don’t have bread rolls on hand!
