Potjie kos
General Method
The meat usually comes first. Add a dash of cooking oil in the pot and when it is hot add the meat. Add sliced onions and stir the meat to seal in the flavoir. Cook the meat until nearly done. Add vegetables in layers according to cooking times, carrots at the bottom followed by sweet potatoes, potatoes, pumpkin, mushroom etc. Arrange the vegetables in layers around the sides forming a hollow for the rice. Marinade or liquid is now added to about 2 cm under the top layer of vegetables.
Replace the lid and do not stir after this. Keep the pot simmering until done. Before serving, stir through once to ensure the meat and veggies at the bottom will be dished up and enjoy. Basically, everyone makes it their way…so you go and have a go and see what works best for you!
