Tomato bredie is a popular South African dish which is known in Afrikaans as Tamatiebredie (literally tomato stew). Originally of Dutch origin, this stew has a good dose of Cape Malay influence, characterized by the use of spices such as coriander, fennel and cardamom. It is a homey dish that can be easily found in many South African homes. Tomato bredie is not that common in restaurants.
The stew consists of chunks of lamb or mutton combined with the aforementioned spices, lots of tomatoes and a dash of white wine. The long, slow simmering results in very tender meat. Tomato bredie is normally served with rice, it having also a delicious taste when served with mieliepap (very similar to polenta).
