Red Hot“Apart from being the first tourists to dock a ship at Mossel Bay, the Portuguese are also famous for a few culinary achievements. One of their best is the rich garlic and chilli-flavoured beef stew known as trinchado,” writes Jan Braai, author of Red Hot.

The National Braai Day website recently shared his recipe for a delicious Beef Trinchado Potjie, which combines rib-eye and rump steak cubes with the robust flavors of Portugal.
