Boerewors is one of the most common meats among Zimbabweans. Popular for breakfast, lunch, supper and also at braais (barbeques). Because of how’s it’s so versatile you can play around with it and enjoy its goodness in many different ways. This dish here is pretty simple, as the name says, and is a quick meal. You’ll be serving in 20 minutes. I call it rustic because you don’t have to be so neat in cutting your onions and peppers!
