Serves: 6
  • 4 tablespoons oil (R2.00)
  • 500g lamb on the bone, cut in large cubes (R35.00)
  • 1 large onion, grated (R3.00)
  • 1 clove garlic, grated (R1.00)
  • 3 medium potatoes, quartered (R5.00)
  • 1 kg of cabbage, about half a cabbage, sliced finely (R0.00 - from my garden)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • juice of half a lemon (R2.00)
  1. Fry the meat in oil for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown - stirring constantly. Do not try to shorten this process. Add the onion and cook for a further 5 minutes. Then add the remaining ingredients and cook slowly for at least one and a half hours until the meat is tender and cooked though. It should be dry but still juicy. Finally add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Serve with a thick slice of fresh bread.
