South Africa - Bobotie (Beef Pie) Recipe
South Africa - Bobotie (Beef Pie)
Here is the final recipe for 2010 FIFA World Cup Menu - Week 3. One more week to go. I'm going to do something special for the finals after the week 4 menu so stay tuned!
No matter where I looked when researching South Africa's cuisine I came across Bobotie. Basically it's a curry meat pie. Hmmm, beef, curry.... what's not to like! Some recipes call for apples and raisins in the beef mixture but I don't typically have those items on hand so I left them out. Add them if you like, it will give the recipe a sweetness and extra nutrients.
