1. Meat kebabs
consisting of small pieces of marinated lamb, beef, chicken, pork, or whatever else was available, put on a wooden skewer
and traditionally cooked at a South African braai
. Along with chicken and fish, sosaties are considered to be a vegetable alternative to the meat-based diet of many South Africans, especially Bloemfontein
residents. The wooden skewers can also be used for toasting marshmallows over the braai fire after the meat has been eaten.
Overweight Afrikaans woman: Here, boy, have some more sosaties! You've hardly eaten anything.
Polite but full young man: Yes ma'am.
