Us South African’s sure love to braai & us Durbanite’s sure love our curry – why not combine the two.
Here is the recipe for the sugar beans. It is not complicated at all, due to the all-in-one Masala.
Everybody has their own recipe for beans, but this is how I cooked this specific dish.
The steak … well that is a different story, as we all have our preferences. This one was just done for 3 mins on each side on the gas grill.
