Title: Heimer's Roadfood: Bull Brand Happiness
Post by: Heimer on January 09, 2013, 03:35:48 pm
I have been wanting to make myself some real road food for a while now.

All my trips lately were to WD bashes and at most of these, the menu included Skaapkop.

So with some free time after christmas I planned a ride to Koedoeskloof, Carnavon and the west coast.

I camped 2 nights at Koedoeskloof

This was how I prepared my lunch on 30 Dec

I must transform this:

First stop is to Veldblom to beg some ingredients from her herb garden.

Of course she said "go for it"

My crop:

The important thing to know about a can of bully beef is that the lard is there for a reason

To fry the onions in.

Separate it from the meat an place it in the pan

(http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x422/heimer1/Road-Food/DSC01666_zps3daf6c30.jpg)

Get that heated

(http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x422/heimer1/Road-Food/DSC01668_zpsc1b240bf.jpg)

Add the onions and garlic

Into the pan.

Adding some curry powder from the kitchen

(http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x422/heimer1/Road-Food/DSC01670_zpsb521ccd3.jpg)

Adding the herbs from Veldblom's garden (a nice bonus)

in case someone wonders what semolina is;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semolina
Semolina is the coarse, purified wheat middlings of durum wheat used in making pasta, breakfast cereals, puddings, and couscous.[1] The term semolina is also used to designate coarse middlings from other varieties of wheat, and from other grains such as rice and corn.

Ek vat hom so:

1 x blikkie beef
1 x blikkie ertjies (dreineer pekelwater)
1 x pakkie Cup-a-soup (enige beef of stew soort)

(gebraaide uie is opsioneel en sal hom nie ontgeur nie)

Kook 'n halfkoppie water in 'n potjie en gooi soppoeier in om tipe sous te maak, sny beef in blokkies en gooi saam met ertjies in die pot.  Roer deurmekaar en sit aan.  Dat dit nog nie 'n Jamie Oliver kostoekenning gekry het nie gaan my verstand te bowe. ???

Glad to see you used proper corned beef and not corned meat. Corned beef  is bloody expensive these days and difficult to find, but I知 convinced the other stuff is made from pig snouts and goat rectums.

I don't think they'll be using the fillet to make corned beef too. ;)

Luckily Heimer is CEO of the Skaapkopgilde. So he's quite used to the taste of the odd bits and ends of animals.  :biggrin:



In the army I lost my taste for:

1. Bully Beef.
2. Chicken bloody biryani
3. Standing in line for food.
4. Making a bed.
5. Walking with a load on my back.

Ha, ha, Stofdonkie...after 18 months in Ovambo it took me about 20 years before I could eat bully again. Nowadays bully has become a twice-a-year delicacy (at most). I'm still sukkeling with the other activities that you mention.

Ek is verbaas dat daai Cous Cous net warm gemaak word sonder dat dit in water gesit word. Bedoelende in direkte kontak met water sodat dit die vloeistof kan absorbeer.

This one, which is proper Corned beef ( not corned meat ) cost around R40,00 a can at Pick n Pay.
Not all branches stock them.

Another brand which also sells corned beef is MAYFAIR.

Net so. Die sakkies is geperforeer en die cous cous absorbeer die water. Jy sit dit net 'n paar minute in gesoute kookwater. As wil 'n botterklontjie by roer - soveel beter...
