  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup of beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup of water


Step 1: Preparing the sausage (wors)

Using a sharp knife, divide the Wors into six pieces, each about 8cm long. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the grill with a small amount of oil, then add the Wors. Cook for about 12-15 minutes, turning the sausage every 3-4 minutes until it is cooked through and golden brown. Once the sausage is cooked, remove it from the grill and set it aside - keeping it warm in the oven.

Step 2: Preparing the gravy

While the sausage is cooking, heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and cook until evenly caramelized - for about 8-10 minutes. Add the beef stock and stir well. Allow the stock to simmer for about 5 minutes before adding the corn starch. Stir until everything is well mixed.
