Pap & Boerewors

The spiced boerewors (a traditional South African sausage) is combined with pap (a South African porridge similar to polenta) to create a filling and comforting dish.

Makes: 3 servings || Takes: 1 Hour and 30 Minutes



6 cups maize meal

1 tbsp salt

3¼ cups boiling water


1 boerewor sausage

Wine Pairing

Cabernet Sauvignon



Grill boerewor until juices start escaping the sausage casing – you don’t want to overcook it.

Bring 3¼ cups water to a boil in an aluminium pot.

Add 1 tbsp salt, then pour maize meal into the boiling water. If cooking on a stove, lower the heat to medium and stir the maize meal with a wooden spoon until it becomes one lump.

Keep stirring the pap every 10 minutes. Switch off the stove after 30 minutes and allow it to cook in the pot’s warmth for about 20 minutes. Serve.
