National Braai Day Marinade Recipe

Spring has sprung and with the 24th of September informally being dubbed ‘National Braai Day’ in South Africa.

The ALL GOLD team would like to spice things up! One day just isn’t enough them!

Why not celebrate our glorious South African Spring with National Braai Month instead! Now that sounds like a plan for me! In the Vijendranath household, we always look for a good excuse to have a braai.

A braai is probably one of the most versatile ways of having a great time with friends and family – you’re in the great outdoors, the sun is setting and the fire is mesmerising! Sparks of wit are flying around, the drink is flowing and the braai masters are unveiling their marinated meat for dinner.

Speaking about all-South African marinades, did you know that the best meat marinades, crammed full of great ingredients, are made using authentic ALL GOLD Tomato Sauce, which is preservative, colourant and thickener free? That’s right. There’re no two ways about it.

It’s not a South African marinade if South Africa’s favourite Tomato Sauce isn’t in the mix. ALL GOLD has been in our secret marinating recipe for years!

Meat should be marinated in this mouth-watering mix for three or four hours before you intend braaing. Your guests will come back for more, so be sure to prepare enough!

    The marinade would really make a delicious BBQ. I have to try that out and maybe still have time for a backyard BBQ before the chilly weather sets in. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
