Braai Onion Parcels Recipe

Next time you have a braai, why not try a new vegetable side-dish, requiring minimal effort? So good with steak and wors!


Prep Time

25 minutes

Cooking Time

+/- 40 minutes


Serves: 8

Recipe Ingredients

  • +/-1kg pickling onions (or baby red onions as an option)
  • 1/3 can beer or cider (110ml)
  • 15ml garlic and herb seasoning
  • 50g SPAR butter

Recipe Method

  1. Place the onions in a bowl and pour over enough boiling water to cover the onions. Set aside for 10 minutes then pour off the water then peel and trim the onions.
  2. Place them onto a large double-layer sheet of heavy-duty aluminium foil. Dot with butter.
  3. Sprinkle on the herb seasoning and bring up the sides to form a deep bowl-shape. Pour in the beer around the onions.
  4. Seal the packet firmly and place it in amongst medium-hot coals until tender.

Hints & Tips

Substitute the beer or cider, with Appletizer or beer shandy.

Be careful when opening the parcel, as a lot of steam is created within, which has the potential to burn your hands.
