1 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper, to taste

Rub lamb rack with spice and herbs and grill at 180°C until cooked to your preferred doneness. Enjoy with Maille mashed potato.
1.5 kg stew beef
2 medium onions, finely diced
1/4 cup apricot jam
2 whole garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp curry powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cups beef liquid stock
1 tsp parsley, finely chopped
Add all ingredients to a slow cooker or pot. Cover and cook on low heat for 2-3 hours or until meat is tender.
4 large red peppers
1-2 fresh green chillies
4 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp lemon juice , freshly squeezed
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
Preheat the oven.
Cut the peppers and chillies in half and flatten them with your hand.
Place pepper and chillies halves, skin side up, on a foil-lined baking pan. Throw in garlic.
Broil for 10-12 minutes or until the red bell peppers are charred and blackened.
Remove from oven and instantly place only the red peppers in a bowl and cover with a kitchen towel to seal. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Once cool, remove and peel the outer skin off.
Add the roasted peppers, garlic cloves, chillies to a blender along with the remaining ingredients and puree until completely smooth. The exact amount of lemon juice depends on it’s acidity, so season to taste with additional salt and/or lemon juice if needed.
Store the sauce in an air-tight container in the fridge for a few days or freeze and use when needed.
Smear the sauce over chicken and roast/grill. Or use it as a dip, as pizza sauce, spread it on sandwiches or pour it over pasta!
