The month of January feels endless. Unfortunately the same can’t be said for the depth of our pockets. Being on a budget doesn’t have to limit your quality time spent around the fire enjoying a lekker potjie with friends and family.
Follow our easy tips and try these amazing recipes for a great budget friendly potjie.
1. Purchase cheaper cuts of meat
You don’t need to use expensive cuts of meat like fillet for stewing, so rather opt for cuts such as stewing meat, goulash and knuckles.
2. Share the cost
If you’re hosting the evening and can afford to, offer to get the meat and let your friends and family bring the veggies, rice or booze.
3. Get everyone to RSVP
Make sure everyone confirms their attendance. This way you won’t overspend and purchase unnecessary ingredients.
4. Allow vegetables to be the star of the show
Add as many veggies as you can, this not only adds variety but bulks up your pot to feed more people (and requires less meat).
