    PHMadness Potjiekos

    This one is for you

    OK American Kudu aka big chuck



    Clean celery, turnips, potatos,carrots



    Fire up the Potjie pot
    And brown meat.





    Make a roux 1/4 cup flour and olive oil
    Be careful stirring constantly note starting color. When it gets to a golden brown quench with 1/2 gal. water or you will burn the roux.

    Throw in meat, veggies, seasoning. Seasoning tbs of Garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne, parsley, coriander, 4 bay leaves, 1/4 cup paprika.





    Now one gallon of water and a WHOLE small jar of "better than bullion" beef base. That's right the whole thing!



    Cover bring to a rolling boil, then reduce flame to the lowest you can go. It will take 30 minutes for this 50 lb cast iron #8 potjie to cool to a simmer. Use a hammer to take the lid on and off.







    You be the judge I add 2 tbs of corn flour and 2 tbs of flour at the 1.1/2 hour mark to thicken. I like it a bit soupy.

    At the 2 hour mark it's done.





    Makes 2.1/2 gallons of potjiekos.

    Hell I forgot, add in a beer!

    Happy ten years on BC my friend.

    That's so cool RC. I am honored and more than a little touched by your efforts. The only thing more I would wish is to be there and have a big bowl of it and a beer with you and the family. Thank you RC, really.

    Stoopid phone.

    A real purist would use this setup, I have one but it's used around a camp fire, not on the patio.






    Also again for those who don't know the pronunciation.

    Potjie: poi-key. the pot

    Potjiekos: poi-key-kos. the potfood.

    Thanks for the thread, RC. Now that I'm off of Facebook, most of the time I have to imagine what my friends' food looks like.

    What's that green stuff? Potatoes and onions are the only vegetables needed.

    Very nice setup. My grandfather had a similar setup on his Farm in Indiana. Many times when we visited my Grandparents, they would have an outdoor cookout. Great times! ... Thanks for the memories.
