Step 6: Adding the sauce
The sauce is a very important part of a "potjie". Many people add beer or wine to the "potjie" to give it a distinct flavor. It this case I just used a packet of sauce I bought from the store. You mix it up with water and "Hey presto" instant sauce! You can use anything, be creative. I have used mustard, tomato sauce (ketchup) and chutney all mixed up with some water and herbs and it came out great. Experiment! That is what makes "potjiekos" so great and versatile. There is no one recipe. Whatever you add, if you follow the basic rules, is also a "potjie". You can make a vegetarian "potjie", cut out the meat, but stick to the layers. The different vegetables will now be in layers. Make seafood, or game, I made a sausage "potjie" once using 6 different kinds of sausages all cut up into pieces. Its all up to you.
