Snake Meat and Daddy’s Birthday

We made “Snake Meat” for Daddy’s birthday. It is special because Daddy had it in Africa and liked it. — it is also a fun braai food.–
I hope you like it too.Grinding the meat

how to make Snake Meat (otherwise known as Beorewors)

1 pound trimmed brisket
1 pound pork round roast
1/4 pound bacon
2 Tbl red wine vinegar
4 cloves garlicStuffing the casing
1 Table Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tablespoon salt
Pepper to taste (a big pinch)
1/2 Tbl ground coriander
Large pinch of grated nutmeg, dried thyme and allspice
Small pinch of ground cloves
Sausage casingsFinished Beorewors

Dice all the meat into 1 inch cubes. Mix all ingredients-except casings-together.
Grind meat using a medium size grinding plate. (It was fun using ours for the first time!)
Fill casings firmly, but not to tightly. Be careful so the casings do not split open.
Refrigerate for 24 hours before using (we tasted part of ours after refrigerating a few hours)
Can be frozen for 3 months or stored in refrigerator a week.

To use…Fire up your favorite grill and enjoy a braai with your favorite picnic foods. Recommended favorites are Simba Salt and Vinegar Chips or Tomato flavoured chips (If you live in South Africa) 🙂 Plus lots of salads and fresh vegetables.FinishedThe girls made Daddy’s Brownie
