Remember last week when I showed you how make your own Boerewors at home and sounded like I will not be making it often. This Boerewors Stew changed my mind.
I loooove one pot meals, it saves me time doing dishes. This has to be one of my best one pot meals yet. It tastes even better the next day.
I thawed my sausage and removed the plastic wrap. I used my wooden spoon to cut into bite size pieces. If your sausage has a casing you remove it unless you like it then just cut it into size bite pieces.
You start by browning the sausage then you add the vegetables, herbs and chicken broth. Then let the stew simmer for 45 minutes without the lid. The whole house will smell delicious. I like my stew to have chunky pieces.
