South African Curried Eggs from Food.com: I really love curried eggs when i want something yummy but easy on a hot night (spicy foods go well with steamy days). It saves cooking meat, boiling eggs can be done in the morning before the rest of the day happens
Braised Oxtail (Potjiekos) from Food.com: Potjiekos has been part of the South African culture for centuries, since the first settlements at the Cape when food was cooked in a black cast-iron pot hanging from a chain over the kitchen fire.
