Thanks for the recipe:


  • 500g impala or other wild meat like Buffalo, Blesbuck or Kudu
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 2 potatoes
  • 3 carrots
  • 6 baby marrows
  • 100g mushrooms
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 sachet hearty beef stew


This dish is normally made in a fire proof pot over charcoal taken from a fire. If that is not possible,  you can make it in a stew pot on the stove.


Step 1Prepare a fire to produce coals. (If not possible, prepare in a normal big pot on the stove.)
Step 2Chop onion and fry in a pan until soft, then add garlic.
Step 3Cut meat and include bones as well for flavour. Fry meat until brown.
Step 4Place meat and onion in the bottom of the potjie pot (or normal pot).
Step 5Peel and chop potato and place on top of the meat, followed by chopped carrot and then baby marrows.
Step 6Now place on chopped mushrooms and tomatoes.
Step 7Mix beef stew sachet with 300ml water and 1 tbs corn flour. Add mix to the pot. Add any extra water needed so there is a little less water than needed to cover all vegetables.
Step 8Bring to the boil on coals, then simmer for 4 hours. Do not stir for first two hours. Take off lid towards the end if too watery.
