3-Legged Pot With South African Origins
This traditional style of pot originated in South Africa and features a unique 3-legged design which props it up over your coals. You regulate the heat by moving the coals closer to, or further away from, the pot. Its rounded shape collects the liquid in the bottom of the pot and the heavy-duty walls and base serve to distribute the heat evenly throughout.
What Do You Cook In A Potjie Pot?
The first layer is normally that of meat. The meat can be seafood, poultry, pork, game, red meat, anything really. Next would normally be the vegetables, then the starch and lastly the sauce would be added. Ingredients that need to cook longer are very often placed closer to the bottom of the “potjie”. The difference between a “potjie” and a stew is that a “potjie” is never stirred during the cooking which leaves you with much more relaxation time.
Wooden Storage Box With Rope Carry Handles
The CAMPFIRE 8 LITRE CAST IRON POTJIE POT is pre-seasoned making it ready to go straight out of the box which, by the way, is made of wood and includes strong rope carry handles. The pot itself also features a durable steel spiral carry handle which is comfortable to grip so you can move it around easily.
