    Default When do you call a kebab a sosatie?

    Only if it is marinated in a curry/spicy sauce..

    Do you agree?

    Default Re: When do you call a kebab a sosatie?

    Strictly speaking it is two completely different things. In South Africa we have made them similar or the same but I was shocked when my daughter said she had kebabs somewhere overseas and there was no sticks involved.

    "Kebab (kebap in Turkish , kabab in Iran , Afghanistan , India and Pakistan , also spelled kebob, kabob; Urdu : کباب) means "grilled (or broiled) meat" in Persian and Turkish . Kebab is usually made of lamb and beef . Sometimes chicken and fish are used for some styles."



    But I also like this definition. "A Kebab you buy at the Spar/PnP

    'n Sosatie maak jy self by die huis."

    Great Childhood memories of making sosaties for the christmas holiday and laying them in curry for a few days.

    Default Re: When do you call a kebab a sosatie?

    A sosatie started out in the Cape and was traditionally lamb cuts skewered, sometimes with apricots over a fire. But now everything skewered over a fire, appears to be a sosatie or kebab. So a sosatie or kebab for me is simply a generic terms for skewered produce done over the coals or flame.

    Espetada on the other hand is specific to beef, salt rub and bay leaves. Preferably a bay leaf skewer. So for me Espetada is neither a sosatie nor a kebab.

    Default Re: When do you call a kebab a sosatie?

    In Greece a sosatie or sovlaki as its called here, is a smaller dish which fits in your plate and with small cuts of meat eaten off the stick. Kebab on the other hand is much bigger pieces put on a large skewer and done like a spit. When done, the pieces are taken off and then dished up on a serving dish. Much like espatada.

    Dit is reg so .

    Persoonlik haat ek vir n sosatie (kebab), weet nie hoekom nie? By Deneysville koop ons "ou skool sosaties", borrie en kerrie met n bietjie soettigheid. Vir een of ander rede hou ek baie van hulle.

    Espetada ......... nou praat ons. Saam met n bord Milho Frito and n chilli sous.

    kebabs have 2 meanings...

    it's a sosatie on the one hand, and if you get kebabs from an Indian curry place it will be "meatballs in spicy sauce"...

    My pa het al die jare gesÍ as jy ou vrot vleis wil koop, koop vir jou sosaties by enige slaghuis of winkel wat dit verkoop. Al wat dit is, is ou vleis wat nie meer kan verkoop agv die reuk en kleur. So wat doen die slagter/verkoper, trek vir dit klere aan en gee dit 'n fancy naam.

    Nadat daardie vleis ge"curry" is sal jy die kleur en reuk nie van dit kan afkry om te sien wat jy regtig koop nie.

    Ek het in my lewe nog nooit sosaties gekoop, maak dit eerder self dan weet ek wat ek eet.

    Ek koop ook nooit "marinated" vleis nie.

    Ek marineer al my vleis self.
