Southern African recipes: Tomato bredie (South Africa)

It has been a while since we posted the last recipe from Southern Africa on the blog, but now I found one that I needed to post about and that you need to check out. In the video recipe, Gabi Le Roux, a South African music producer and avid home cook, explains how to make one of my favourite South African comfort dishes - the tomato breedie. A tomato breedie is a meat dish that can be made with lamb or mutton, or, like in the video, with chicken.

Remember to cook the bredie, which is an old Cape name for a dish of meat and vegetables stewed together, slowly for at least 2.5 hrs. The flavour will also improve if made a day in advance. Serve it with rice. Kudos @ Gabi Le Roux for the video and recipe!
