25 ml sunflower oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
5 ml whole cloves
5 ml mustard powder
5 ml dried (or 10 ml fresh) parsley
5 ml braai spice

1 can pineapple pieces in juice
250 g mixed dried fruit
125 ml chutney
50 ml natural yoghurt


  • Heat the oil and brown the meat in batches.
  • Don’t do too much at once as the meat will draw water.
  • Remove the meat from the pot.
  • Fry the onion and garlic in the remaining oil, adding more if necessary and add the spices.
  • Stir-fry for another minute.
  • Add the meat, beer, Coca-Cola and Worcestershire sauce and stir.
  • Cover and simmer over a low heat for about two hours or until tender.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and cook or another hour.
  • Stir in the yoghurt shortly before serving.
  • Serve with rice or pap and a salad.
