Barbeque Rashers

Nothing beats this on the braai


  • 6 Pork rashers, outer skin removed
  • 1 Onion, finely grated
  • 15 ml Olive oil
  • 1 Can tomatoes, pureed in a blender
  • 25 ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 30 ml Brown sugar
  • 5 ml French mustard
  • 50 ml Red or white wine vinegar
  • 5 ml Barbeque spice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Trim any unwanted fat from the rashers and remove the outer skin if it is still on (It’s a very good idea to ask your butcher to do this)

Saute the onion in the olive oil until soft and add the remaining ingredients

Simmer the sauce for 5 minutes and puree in a blender until smooth

Add water if the sauce is too thick

Heat sauce and simmer pork rashers over low heat fo 10 – 15 minutes in the sauce. Remove rashers and pat dry

Grill the rashers under a hot oven grill or over hot coals and turn at regular intervals to get an even golden brown colour on both sides

Use tongs to turn the rashers over, not a fork

Baste with the sauce while grilling

Season with salt and pepper just before removing them from the heat

Serve with stywe pap (polenta) or mash potatoes and bean or other green salad

Variation: Add the juice of one lemon and two tablespoons of olive oil to the marinade and leave the Worcestershire sauce out
