Father’s Day treat

2010-06-18 10:15

With soccer fever

gripping ­Mzansi, Father’s Day may kick off with the blast of a vuvu­zela. If

you want to surprise dad ­before kickoff ­today, how about this South

American-inspired sauce for his steak?

Chilli-chocolate sauce

» 1 tablespoon cooking or olive oil

» 1 medium onion, chopped

» 3 cloves garlic, chopped

» 2 teaspoons finely chopped red chilli

» 1 tin tomato purée

» 125ml beef stock

» 3 tablespoons red wine

» 30g dark chocolate


Heat the oil in a saucepan and ­sauté the onion,

garlic and chilli for a couple of minutes. Add the tomato ­purée, beef stock,

red wine and ­chocolate, and simmer for about 5 minutes or so.

Serve over steak cooked on the braai or grill. Keep

it simple by serving it with roast baby potatoes or chips. Extra tasty with a

big glass of dry red wine.
