1.3kg lean boneless beef sirloin or braising steak, cubed
1.3kg boneless pork shoulder, cubed
4 tsp ground coriander seeds
2 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground allspice
450g pork fatback, finely chopped
120ml red wine vinegar
Sausage casing, optional
Tomato bredie, recipe follows

For the tomato bredie

2 tbsp canola or rice bran oil
2 large onions, thinly sliced
900g pork mince
2 (410g) tins crushed tomatoes
2 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 fresh green chilli, such as jalapeno, chopped, or red chilli flakes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) One day ahead: In a large bowl, combine the beef, pork, coriander, salt, pepper, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. Mix until combined. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

2) On the day of serving: Grind the meat mixture in a meat grinder. Add the fatback and vinegar to the meat and mix well. Stuff the meat into sausage casing, if using, or else form the mixture into sausage patties. In a skillet set over medium-high heat, cook the boerewors until browned.

3) For the tomato bredie: Heat the oil in a large saute pan set over medium heat, and saute the onions until they're transparent. Add the pork and cook until brown. Add the tomatoes, potatoes, and chilli to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and the tomato liquid is almost gone, about 20 mins.

3) Serve the boerewors with the Tomato Bredie.
