“Kota, the township staple made with a quartered white loaf and stuffed with slap chips, atchar, cheese, polony (and many other trimmings depending on where you buy it) remains one of my favourite street foods. My ultimate version is made with steak and the best condiment ever: Woolies jalapeño atchar.” – Mogau Seshoene


  • 150 g Woolworths tenderised beef steak
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 T butter
  • 1⁄4 loaf white bread
  • 3 T Woolworths jalapeño atchar
  • 100 g slap chips
  • 1 slice Cheddar cheese
  • 1 free-range egg, fried
  • For the sauce, mix:
  • 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 t tomato sauce
  • 1 t mustard
  • 1⁄2 t garlic, minced
  • a pinch paprika
  • 1 gherkin, finely chopped

Cooking Instructions

1. Season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan and fry the steak for 5 minutes on each side.

2. Toast the bread, then hollow it out. Layer in the atchar, steak, chips, cheese and egg, then top with the sauce.
