Mieliepap Recipe
Mieliepap (called "grits" in Texas) is an old South African favorite that goes well with meat or as a breakfast porridge or cereal.
Recipe type: Breakfast, Main
Cuisine: South African
  • 5 - 6 cups water (1/2 water, ½ milk for cereal)
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. butter (optional, but it makes it taste better)
  1. Boil the water in a pot and add the salt and butter. Slowly stir in the flour with a wok or fork. Turn the heat to medium and wait for your pap to start bubbling. Cover the pot with a lid and let the pap simmer for 30 - 45 minutes. (The longer and slower it steams, the better the taste.)
  2. This can be eaten with milk and sugar for breakfast, or with brown gravy and braaivleis (BBQ'd meat).
