  • 2 pounds Ground Lamb, Beef or a mixture of both
  • 1/2 pounds Onion, large dice
  • 1/8 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1/16 loaf White Bread
  • 1/16 gallon Cream
  • 1/16 pound Sugar (add more as needed)
  • 1/4 ounce Cinnamon (adjust as needed)
  • 1/8 pound Almond or Pumpkin Seeds, sliced
  • 1/16 pound Seedless Raisins
  • 1/16 pound Golden Raisins
  • 1/8 ounce Curry Powder (adjust as needed)
  • Topping
  • 1/16 gallon Easy Eggs

  1. Heat oil and caramelize the onions. Reduce heat and add dry spices. Mix well. Deglaze with rice wine vinegar. Add meat and continue to cook until meat is cooked through.

  2. When the meat is done, drain 90% of the grease off. Then tear the bread into small pieces and add it as well as the cream to the meat mixture.

  3. Add the sugar and mix well. Add a little bit of water if the mix looks too dry. Then add the raisins and almonds. Re-season and cool.

  4. In a small container, place the bobotie mixture and top with the egg custard mix. Bake in the oven at 325o until golden brown and cooked through.
