This bacon and green pea potjiekos recipe is a great way to use some tasty ingredients and prepare a good old traditional south african delicacy in a cast iron pot on hot coals.
Potjiekos consists of savory dishes that usually contain meat and vegetables and is prepared outdoors in a cast iron pot (potjie) that is available in different sizes. Potjiekos is usually cooked on low heat that is provided by the coals of just a few coals of wooden logs. It doesn't contain a lot of water and it is important to be able to add or remove coals during the cooking process to keep the heat at just the right level. This way of preparing meals goes back to the middle of the 17th century when the Dutch and Malay people started to settle on the Cape and introduced new ways of food preparation to the land.
