This tangy BBQ beef and lamb broth “braaimallows” recipe is the new and best way to baste ribs, chops, steak or chicken, on the braai (or in the oven) without loosing half of the basting in the fire or pan! They are packed with collagen which lets the marshmallows keeps its shape at room temperature, but melts and renders slowly into meat when heated.

Combine warm water, brown sugar, and glucose in a medium saucepan, stir and boil until it reaches a temperature of 120°C.

In another medium saucepan combine mustard, tomato sauce, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cumin allow this to cook over low heat for 15 minutes.

When the syrup has reached temperature pour it into the sauce mix and combine until smooth.

Whisk in the xanthan gum for 2-3 minutes until the sauce has doubled in volume. 

Prepare small baking tins by brushing the base and sides with oil and then sprinkle the surfaces with corn flour.

Pour the marshmallow mixture into the baking pans and allow it to set at room temperature for a minimum of 1.5 hours up to 24 hours. 

When the marshmallow mixture is set, shape by scooping 15 g portions and shaping it between 2 teaspoons cornflour to form balls. 

Place marshmallow balls in a cookie-cutter powdered with cornflour and twist until a circular shape is formed. 

Dust the marshmallows with corn flour and place them individual small containers in a cool dry place.
