Get sizzling with South African pork

Juicy South African pork is available in many different cuts, including chops, rashers and sosaties, all of which lend themselves perfectly to the braai. Or, ask your butcher to cut it just the way you like it. Then whip up your favourite marinade or basting sauce, apply liberally, and get sizzling


Pan-fry the pork loin chops and serve with roasted sweetcorn purée and fennel, or smashed baby peas, sage butter and Woolworths’ beetroot hummus.

For the sweetcorn purée, pan-fry the kernels cut from 3 cobs of corn in a cast-iron pan with olive oil until caramelised. Add chopped onion and garlic, then cook until softened. Finish off with a knob of butter, some grated pecorino and cream, then purée with nutmeg and seasoning to serve.

For the smashed peas, blanch Woolworths’ petit pois, then mash with freshly squeezed lemon juice and Woolies herbed pesto, and season to taste.
