What is Wors Stew?

Wors stew is a traditional South African dish that has been around for centuries. It is made with beef and pork sausages, tomato sauce, potatoes, carrots, celery and onion. This hearty stew is usually served with rice or mashed potatoes and can be enjoyed as a main meal or as an accompaniment to other dishes.

How To Make Wors Stew

Making wors stew at home does not require any special equipment – all you need are some basic kitchen tools such as a large pot for the stew and a wooden spoon to stir it. Here’s how you can make delicious wors stew:


• 2 lbs of beef sausage (or your preferred type of sausage)
• 1 lb of pork sausage (or your preferred type)
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 onion – diced • 4 cloves garlic – minced • 2 large carrots – peeled & chopped • 2 stalks celery – chopped • 4-5 medium potatoes – peeled & cubed • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes • ½ teaspoon thyme • Salt & pepper to taste


1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and cook until they turn translucent; about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté another minute until fragrant.

2. Next add in the sausages breaking them up into small pieces using a wooden spoon while stirring occasionally for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through completely; drain off any excess fat if necessary during this time also but keep some fat as it will help flavour the dish better later on!

3. Add in carrots, celery, potatoes and seasonings then give everything one final stir before adding canned tomatoes with their juices; bring mixture up to simmering point then reduce heat low enough so that just bubbles form every now again without boiling over too much otherwise liquid levels become reduced quickly due to evaporation happening faster than expected which will result in having less overall flavoursome sauce when serving later on….just adjust accordingly if needed throughout cooking process! Cook uncovered approximately half hour stirring occasionally making sure everything gets well mixed together nicely so no single ingredient stands out more than others visually speaking as well taste wise too after tasting sample from pan itself rather than waiting till end result which could be not quite what had envisioned originally due desire lack patience exhibited here today 🙂

4.. Finally once all vegetables have softened slightly yet still retain their nice shape/texture remove from heat let cool slightly before transferring contents into separate bowl ready serve either warm cold depending preference…enjoy yummy worserie!!
