Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cut the boerewors into smaller pieces and brown on both sides. Once browned, remove from the skillet and set aside.

Add onion to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes, until translucent. Add garlic and chillies, and cook for about 2 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant.

Add chilli powder, paprika, ground cumin, salt, cayenne pepper and tomato paste. Cook until tomato paste has darkened in colour.

Add sugar, canned tomatoes and beef stock, then bring skillet to a boil.

Lower the heat and return the boerewors to the pan. Cook uncovered for a further 15 minutes on medium heat.

Serve with pap or your favourite starchy side.
