What is Boerewors?
Boerewors - "BOO-ruh-vorse"
Boerewors is a South African fresh sausage that is perfect for the grill. The name means “farmer’s sausage” and comes from a combination of the Afrikaans words boer (‘farmer’) and wors (‘sausage’).
It is thought that the original recipes would have come from the early migrants to South African brought with them from the Netherlands. The sausage is usually formed and presented in a large spiral. Cooking Boerewors over a Braai (BBQ) is a strong patriotic tradition in South Africa culture and is often associated with national holidays.
Boerewors is made from coarsely minced beef (sometimes combined with minced pork, lamb, or both) and spices (usually toasted coriander seed, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice).
