Tomato Bredie (Stew)
Try this traditional South African recipe

25 ml butter (or margarine, lard or sunflower oil)
2 large onions, sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1.5 kg stewing lamb or mutton, cubed
10 ml salt
milled pepper
little stock, water or wine
500 g potatoes, sliced
1 kg medium tomatoes, skinned and chopped
5 ml white sugar
2 ml dried thyme
5 ml chopped fresh marjoram

Heat the butter in a large saucepan and sauté the onions and garlic for about 5 minutes or until the onions are transparent. Add the meat and brown quickly on all sides. Add the salt, pepper and a little stock, water or wine and simmer, covered, for 90 to 120 minutes, or until the meat starts to get tender. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, sugar, thyme and marjoram and stew for a further hour. Serve with cooked rice.
