Potjiekos is robust, full of
flavors, very healthy, but it is also a friendly and
very sociable occasion. Not only is potjiekos healthy
food, but it is also healthy in that it causes one to
relax, be happy and enjoy good company.
Potjiekos is really a group of good friends, a
well seasoned potjie, a good beer or a fine wine, a warm
fire, lots of time, fine food, herbs & spices, many
tall stories and delectable aromas.
Potjiekos is an event or a
gathering where good friends get together and while
cooking, share the chores, pass too much advise on the
potjie’s (the central theme) preparation and contents,
lots of laughter and a harmonious atmosphere - potjiekos
is a social & culinary event and invariably no
potjiekos recipe ever tastes the same!
in the cast iron capture flavors of past potjiekos
adventures, which gradually get released into the potjie
as the metal heats up. Most potjies taste better the
next day after having “aged” overnight in the pot - but
after all is said, the choice is yours as to when you
choose to eat your potjie!!
Potjiekos is SLOW
cooking but healthy and fun cooking, in that the method
and preparation preserves all of the vital minerals and
vitamins that normally get destroyed with fast food.
Because the potjie has a round
belly, the liquid in the potjie will always be at the
lowest point and this together with the cool heat and
the round belly will cause the heat to be evenly
distributed through the pot, thus preventing burning and
allowing even cooking.
Potjie is always cooked
over a “cool” fire (or low on the gas range) and should
take at least 1 - 2 hours to completely heat up the pot
and its contents.
Once heated, one has to listen to the
pot as it should be cooking at a slow simmer ( a
whispering, gentle gurgling sound should be emanating
from the interior of your pot).
Try to avoid taking the lid off
the pot, except closer to the time when you are ready to
serve as the domed lid is critical to the circulation of
heat and steam within the pot.
Traditionally potjiekos is a stew, made either
with lamb, beef, fish or poultry but always together
with vegetables. Potjie is “built” in layers with the
meat and hard vegetables at the bottom of the pot and
the quicker cooking vegetables towards the
Potjie is never stirred while
cooking - only just prior to serving, will you stir the
potjie for the first time, blending all of the food and
After stirring , one may thicken the
potjie to the consistency of your choice. Most important
to remember is that vegetables create their own water
and it is usually unnecessary to add any water to your
pot to get it going, though if you feel that you do
require a bit of liquid, use ½ a cup of either sherry,
port wine or beer.
If you are cooking
potjiekos over a fire, you may place coals around the
gutter in the lid, the heat will “creep” through the
metal to the apex of the domed lid, giving you an evenly
heated top heat source.
If cooking on the gas range,
place the 3 legs over the burner and for larger pots,
create a chimney effect by spanning aluminum foil around
the outside of the legs (leave a 4" space open in the
front so that you can see the flame).
remember that when handling your potjie that it is heavy
(the density and evenness of the casting allows for an
even heat distribution and retention (an important
feature of cast iron) and if full it will weigh even
more - so careful handling using the galvanized metal
handle with oven mitts (when hot) is very
If handling larger potjies more
than one bodies hands will be required to move it.
The potjie is the ultimate in
alternative energy cooking because of its unique design.
Its tall legs make it ideal for
setting over the coals, and works just as well over a
gas range or burner.
Due to its unique shape, the
potjie will absorb the maximum possible heat from the
source, where other flat bottom pots will deflect unless

lowest point to prevent the food from burning
Domed lid allows for optimal
internal heat circulation
The peripheral gutter on the
lid can be used for coals.
The opposing side handles and
thick wire lifter handles make handling easy.
The tall legs make it ideal for
cooking directly over fire/coals or gas range.
