Making a potjie is an art in itself. Adding Curry to the mix makes it more of a challenge. This simple recipe would give your guests a great culinary experience.
This potjie is very simple to make and does not take long at all.
You will need:
Half a cup of olive oil
500 grams beef goulash
3 Medium-sized onions, sliced
2 cups macaroni
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
15 cherry tomatoes
1 Litre Beef stock (I use 2 Knorr oxtail cubes)
1 Teaspoon dried sweet basil
Salt and black pepper to taste
Half a cup of grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the oil in the potjie and add the onions. Fry till transparent and remove from the potjie.
Brown the meat in the oil and return the onions to the potjie. Add the spices, seasoning, garlic and tomatoes and give it a good stir.
Close the potjie and allow to simmer for ten minutes.
After 10 minutes add the beef stock, cover and allow to simmer until the meat is soft. By this time the tomatoes will have cooked away into the meat.
Add the macaroni and give it another good stir.
Cook until the macaroni is soft and has absorbed most of the liquid.
When serving, sprinkle a good helping of Parmesan cheese over the dish.
Delicious with a good red wine!
