    Potjiekos Anyone ?

    It's fall and time to break out the Potjie (Pots). Is anyone else interested in this technique ?

      It's terrific. I have three pots given to me by my South African friends. I usually make stews from lamb, oxtail and wild game. Anything goes with this technique. I'll begin posting different cooks (with pictures) as I go along.

        I'm looking to buy a genuine South African potjie for my wife (who is Zimbabwean) to cook sadza in. Very hard to find the genuine article here in England and way too heavy to bring back by plane from our frequent African trips!

          Isn't a cast iron Dutch oven the equivalent? If not, what differences exist?

        Generally, a Potjie has legs so that it may be stood over a wood fire and also a loop handle so that it may be hung on a tripod over a fire. We have found that regular cast-iron dutch ovens do not sit well on top of wood fires and tend to tip over. I know we could make some kind of trivet to stand it on but a traditional Potjie is on legs ...

            Interesting! I just checked Amazon and they get expensive and really big. I see another difference besides legs is the rounded bottom. Dutch ovens are flat bottomed. That will change the cooking character.
