The ultimate smoor recipe, best served with wors

Be inspired by this classic braai combo


We challenge you to find a South African who isn’t passionate about wors. And what better way to celebrate this savoury sausage – especially in summer – than pairing it with another South African favourite, tomato smoor?

The classic tomato-and-onion flavour complements the spiced and roasted coriander in Grabouw boerewors, which is made using ground beef and pork according to a traditional South African recipe. And the best thing about this smoor recipe is that you’re sure to have all the ingredients on hand.

Easy smoor

Fry 2 finely chopped onions and 1 T crushed garlic in 4 T olive oil until soft and golden. Add one 800 g can drained, whole peeled tomatoes, 70 g tomato paste and 2 T sugar and simmer for 10 minutes. Add 2 cups water and simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring often. Season to taste.
