    This dish is a wonderful demonstration of South Africa’s multicultural landscape, combining classic French ingredients like thyme and butter with African spices.


    Mix strips with mint and thyme.

    Wrap in foil and put on hot coals for 4 minutes. Melt butter in a pan.

    Cook onions and mushroom. Add ½ a cup of peri-peri sauce and simmer for 1 minute. Add a pinch of pepper.

    Cook rice, flavour with Spice for Rice. Braise vegetables in a scoop of butter.

    Tips and Tricks

    • Keep mint in a glass of water, like a bouquet of flowers and store in your fridge wrapped in a plastic bag. Mint should last a week or so stored in this way. Remember to change the water regularly to prevent mould and decay.

    • Avoid placing mushrooms near foods with strong odours or flavours, they will absorb them like a sponge!

    • Cooked rice can be frozen and saved for another meal. We recommend consuming within 2 weeks of freezing for maximum taste and to avoid freezer burn.
