    Bel's Belly's Note:

    Loosely based on Cass Abraham's Tomato Bredie, but designed for a proper potjie pot. The Potjie pot is usually placed over a fire or barbecue. (though a large saucepan on the hob will do, honest!). This is a traditional South African stew, usually made with mutton. I adapted it so that you can get the ingredients easily in Britain's lamb-obsessed supermarkets. The longer you leave it cooking, the better it gets.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Add the cloves, cinnamon, paprika, ginger and garlic to some oil and heat in the potjie pot until fragrant.
    2. 2
      Add the meat and potatoes to the pot, then add layers of onion and pepper.
    3. 3
      Finally, add the tomatoes to the top of the pot, and sprinkle over the coriander.
    4. 4
      Pour the wine over the top and allow to drain through.
    5. 5
      Put the lid on the pot and leave to simmer.
    6. 6
      After half an hour, stir the pot well so that the meat is now on the top.
    7. 7
      Cover again, turn the heat down if necessary, and leave to slow cook for as long as possible.
    8. 8
      Good after two hours, even better the next day.
    9. 9
      Serve with rice – if you have room!
