Cooking Proudly South African Meals with The Lazy Makoti

Pap and Wors. The Lazy Makoti

Sunday will mark Heritage month and what better way to celebrate it than with delicious meals prepared by you and The Lazy Makoti?

What I love about September is that it marks a season that shows national and cultural pride. And food is one of the best ways to show what makes us unique as South Africans. Mogau Seshoene, founder of The Lazy Makoti has you covered with her favourite food recipe that you can prepare for your family:

Here’s her Umngqusho with lamb neck potjie recipe *Samp and beans*

2  cups samp

2  cups sugar  beans

1  onion

2  potatoes

1  large tomato

salt, to taste

1 beef stock cube

2 -3  teaspoons curry powder

Soak samp and beans overnight

Mix and wash the samp and beans together.

Put them in a large pot with 5-6 cups water and cook samp and beans until they start becoming soft. Check on it every 30 minutes or so to see if the samp and beans need more water

Once the samp and beans are slightly soft,  drain some of the water if there is more than a few cups of water still cooking with it and add the rest of the ingredients (the vegetables, oil, salt, spices and seasonings). Cook the remainder of time it takes until the beans are very soft (usually 20-30 minutes more). *Lamb neck potjie*

120 g  flour

1  Tablespoon  paprika

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1   kg lamb neck

2 T canola oil

1   onion, thinly sliced

2   garlic cloves, finely grated or crushed

4  leeks, washed and finely chopped

1 can chopped tomatoes can

4  beef stock, or enough to cover

6   baby carrots, halved lengthways

Mix the flour with the spices and toss the lamb neck in the spice mixture. Heat the oil in a large potjie on hot coals. Brown the meat all over, ensuring the coals do not touch the bottom of the potjie.

Add the garlic and leeks and cook for 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, stir and cook for 5 minutes. Add the beef stock and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 50 minutes, or until soft and cooked through. Add the carrots and cook for a further 5 minutes.
