Grab your sausage casing then secure the end. Place the other end in a large hole funnel then gently pour in the mixture and push it to fill the casing. (Do not over fill the casing otherwise it will burst during the cooking process)

When finished tie the end and place it in a coil shape.

 

Oven Process:

Preheat the oven between 170C and 180C

Brush and coat the boerewors in vegetable or olive oil. Place it in a larger heat-proof dish to help it expand.

Cook it for 10 minutes on each side for a total of 20 minutes. Boerewors should be ready to eat about 20-25 minutes.

 

Frying pan process:

 Coat the pan with oil. This is to prevent the boerewors from sticking to the pan when frying

Place it on low heat and gently fry until it’s golden brown on both sides for about 25-30 minutes.
