  • 5 ml oregano
  • 15 ml salt
  • 15 ml brown sugar
  • Extra:
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped

Rub the belly with the dry mix, and add the chopped onion and garlic, rub again,
Marinade in fridge for 3 hours.
Rub now with oil and fry on the BBQ over hot coals, +- 4 minutes per side.
Put in a dish with a tight fitting lid.

  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1 cup brown sugar
