Preheat the oven to 180°C. In a bowl, combine the boerewors and breadcrumbs. Form balls and place them on a greased baking tray.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.

In a medium sized saucepan, heat the oil on the stove and sauté the onion, garlic, pepper and chilli for approximately 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sweet and sour sauce, chutney, red wine vinegar and sour cream. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the stock cube, fresh basil, dried herbs and beans. Add water if necessary. Stir and cook for 2 minutes.

Gently add the boerewors meatballs and adjust the seasoning according to your preference.

Remove from the heat and serve on a bed of mashed potatoes, pap or spaghetti.
