A delicious sweet sauce beans recipe more commonly known as Sousboontjies. This is the short method of making this recipe. I have a long method as well which I called Sousboontjies. You might ask: “Well, why on earth would I want to try the long method if there is a short method?” It’s because the long method tastes a little bit different from the short method. And in general the long method are much tastier. So yes, this Sweet Sauce Beans recipe and the Sousboontjies recipe are exactly the same recipes that are just made in two different ways. It is basically a long and a short version for the same recipe. To sum that up: Sousboontjies = Long Method and Sweet Sauce Beans = Short Method. If you would like to make sweet sauce beans in a tastier way… you can just go to my Sousboontjies recipe.
Note that this method can also be tricky to make since your amounts need to be just right. Heck, I’ve even struggled to get this recipe right. Took me three tries…third time lucky I guess. Furthermore, this short version is for those who are in a hurry or can’t be at home for long periods of time. But if you find you have a lot of time on your hands and want to try a delicious dish…why not try the long method? If all goes well you won’t regret it.
And lastly but not least…you will need the following for this recipe:
- A bowl to soak your beans in (don’t forget to soak your beans in water the previous night since soft beans cook faster)
- A pot
- A kettle
- A jug or cup
And that’s it. Looks like a much easier list to follow as the one in the long method, right?
