A spicy beef and pork sausage from South Africa, typically cooked at a braai (SA BBQ). Invented by the boeres (farmers) of South Africa, it can be dried into droe wors(similar to beef jerky) which can last for a long treks. Boerewors is typically served in a bun with ketchup like a hotdog.
Sometimes the name is also given to the beef jerky-like sticks/slices of dried beef.
I had a jol at the braai on Saturday, the boerewors was lank!
