Serves: 4-5

Ingredients:

  • 1 kg pork
  • 1 cup brandy
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  • Clean the pork and cut it into long strips. 
  • Salt it gently and soak it in brandy overnight. 
  • The next morning, remove the pork from the brandy and grill over a fire for as long as it takes to cook until dry.
    Usually village fires are lit through the day and night and the pork smokes in a week's time. The smoked favour is what makes it tasty.
