Preparation

  1. Put olive oil, rolled garlic cloves, paprika, pepper sauce and bay leaf in a pan and mix.
  2. Turn on the heat and let the garlic saute a little to release flavor but don't let it burn.
  3. Add the wine, beer, whiskey, port wine and a pinch of salt.
  4. When it boils, add the meat and mix it well in the sauce.
  5. Drizzle with half of the lemon juice,  add the piri piri sauce and the remaiding lemon juice to the pan.
  6. Let it simmer for about 45 minutes, so that the meat is tender, if you see that you need more sauce, add some more beer or white wine (do not add water).
  7. Before removing from the heat, check the seasoning.

No Onion in this recipe? I love fried onions with my bifana.

Sorry Gerry, this is a traditional bifana and it does not contain onions, try this one: bifana with onions.

I'm having family over tomorrow, but I wanted to make the febras today. Would it be ok to make a day ahead and refrigerate in the pan with the marinade. Then reheat tomorrow. Just wondering what your thoughts are on this?

Yes, it will be completely fine Michele, just make sure you cover the pan while you refrigerate and preheat on stove top.

Can you tomato sauce for more flavor??

You can if you want, but it will take away from the original taste, but of course you should always tweak a recipe to your taste. 🙂
