South African Barbecue (Braai Marinade Recipe)

4 ratings

In South Africa, braai (or barbeque) is one of the most popular means of socializing. But don’t try to braai on a shiny gas grill. A traditional braai is cooked over a wood or coal fire (preferably wood) to bring out the best of the meat’s flavor. Try this marinade with whatever you’d like to braai; it works equally well with chicken, beef, lamb or fish.
