A Braai (Barbecue) of A Karro Lamb’s Hindquarter..

If there is something I love to Braai its Karoo or Kalahari Skaap (sheep).. the best is my deboned, marinated Lamb hindquarter done slowly over a fire.. The Son does saddle chops of the Kalahari skaap, which the way he does it, is to die for…

Being a slow process one gets a lot of visitors whilst sitting beside the fire… The Warthog, only got the peaches Linda had bought for herself..

The chameleon called in and it made no difference how many colours he changed to… he was getting none of my skaap…

But here is what I keep for myself and guests… the Karoo Lambs agterkwart.. deboned and slow braaied for 3 odd hours, marinated, doctored and spoken to nicely for the whole time period…..



Now this, thinly sliced, with fresh bread, garden salad, cheese, mint sauce or mustard, or with a good heap of Sudza (Mielie porridge) is to die for..

  1. Like the look of those steaks – nice dainty portions – just right. Good to see the chameleon as well.

  2. I like hearing new words–braai–thanks for translating for me. 🙂 That looks like a very nice cut of meat and I’m sure you enjoyed every bite! The warthogs got kind of close, though, didn’t they? If they got Linda’s peaches, that’s too close for me! And the chameleon shots are great, so colorful against the black background. Great photos!

    • Thank you… what I didn’t add was the photos of Linda feeding her naartjies to the zebra that strolled into the area not long after that… this was at a park that has wild animals strolling around amid the houses (a kind of huge farm converted to game reserve)… a kind of holiday home area where one can build but no fences are allowed… wonderful place…

    • Hey when you’re good you’re good… this was in the Marltho park at a chalet that we hired… and in he walked casual as though he owned the place… later that night we had a zebra visit and it took naartjies out of my wife’s hand… just like a horse…
      The Warthog was priceless in that we fed him my wife’s mangoes she had bought for the weekend… the darn pig actually peeled them before eating, discarding the skin and pip…

    • Thank you Ruth… I was wanting to move him onto different spots to capture more colour changes… but he was having nothing of it… one of the aggressive ones he was…

  3. You had my interest in all the beautiful pictures and now you are just teasing us with this tantalizing piece of meat! 😉

  4. I recall with great nostalgia when Karoo lamb was a plentiful and inexpensive menu item. We had lamb in stews, roast, braaied, chops as Irish stew, and thick lamb sandwiches for school lunch. Still my favourite meat, but rarely afforded.

    • Yes the days of R7 a kilo are long gone… so now it has to be a special occassion for this event.. at R60 per kilo it’s an expensive meal… but still enjoyable…
