Tomato Oxtail Potjie
What is potjiekos?
Potjie is not a stew. A “potjiekos” (meaning “small pot food”) is a meal cooked in a cast-iron pot known as a “potjie” (pronounced “poi-kee”), but most South Africans refer to the dish itself as a potjie too. It usually consists of meat and veg and is prepared outdoors and cooked slowly over an open fire.
The number one rule of cooking with a potjie pot is: DO NOT STIR THE POT. As a result of this method, all the ingredients cook perfectly, but are not overly tainted by each other, so you experience different flavours and textures with each mouthful. You should also be able to visually identify all the ingredients, which is often not the case with a stew. This, together with the unique smoky flavour only achieved from cooking over a flame, is what makes potjie really special.
