Boerewors in tomato sauce

Boerwors with tomato sauce served over a bed of mukimo

Boerewors is considered as a south African delicacy but in kenya we enjoy our own version called mutura (kenyan sausage). Since i was not going to go through the traditional route and make my won with intestines, I did what any one of us would do… popped into the supermarket and bought my self a pack of borewors without all the fuss.

  • 300g boerewors
  • 4 garlic cloves (finely chopped)

  • 1 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp oregano leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of black pepper or to taste
