I found this recipe from Thuli of MGANSI STYLE CUSINE and have passed it on as it was presented : Peter

"Whether it’s prepared in winter or summer this dish is a guaranteed winner and your guests will give you the complimentary ‘oooh’s and ‘aaah’s around the dinner table.

I grew up in an environment whereby if there’s been a slaughtered cow the whole community got a notification. This meant bringing your buckets or whatever container you could find and go collect some meat. Take as much as you want, however, the meat had to be cooked and eaten immediately to avoid spoiling.

Stew and dumplings is one of the dishes that were chosen to prepare the meat. I remember sitting with my cousins around the fire place with the potjie simmering away. The killer was the aroma coming out of the potjie every time the lid was opened to stir the contents.

I really don’t feel like dwelling on how good this recipe is. It really speaks for itself. All you need to do is to try it…just watch out for the ‘oooh’s, ‘aaah’s as well as the consequent licking of fingers!
