When you have a braai planned during the sunny South African weekends, you need some new tricks. Sometimes it can come in the form of great starters or whole meals. These liver sosaties are that something different as it has a different cut of meat and served in a whole new way. The livers go very well with the salty bacon, cayenne pepper, mushrooms and pickled onions. It’s a great braai treat for when your friends as it’s served on the snack table.

Tips for your liver sosaties

The recipe is easy to put together and the real treat is in the marinade. The tangy, slightly spicy, marinade will penetrate the liver to naturally tenderize and flavour it. You can get creative and even marinade the bacon. Add some other spices like paprika, chili flakes, sesame seeds or even some crushed garlic. These are easily grilled on the stove, but the char and smoke from the braai will elevate them to a whole new level.

Bring something different to your next braai. The surprisingly tender liver sosaties are the best way to start the weekend feast with friends and family.
