Classic Boerie Rolls
The sun finally came out this week for one afternoon anyway, so I thought lets have a classic SA lunch "Boerewors Rolls" what more could you ask for. There's not a great deal to say or do about cooking boerewors but there are definitely things that you should never do to any good boerewors and I will let you in on them shortly. There is also a video about how we make our Wors at the end of this weeks blog, be sure to watch and let us know what you think.
I'm cooking boerewors that we have been making for over 33 years now in our factory and I've been told by many that they think thats its amongst the best there is. WIth 14 different varieties to choose from we think that you should find one that you like or suits you dietary requirements but i am going to cook our Original Beef Boerewors for this blog. You can take a look at the range that we make here www.biltong.co.uk.

Boerewors Braaiing Tips
- Never, ever prick the skins of good quality Boerewors, all this does is it lets the juices out and you will end up with dry tasteless wors. If you are not lucky enough to be able to get a good quality wors then you will end up with a load of fat in the wors and it will not taste great.
- Only turn the boerewors once when cooking, this helps avoid the wors breaking.
- Let the wors cook until it caramelises on one side before you turn it, this stops the wors from sticking to the grills and tearing.
- Cook the wors in a coil and open it up slightly so that the heat can get to all sides, close it up before turning
- Always cook on a braai that is hot enough to crisp the skin and not boil the wors, otherwise this will make the skins really tough.
