Cooking with Coenie

As part of the upcoming international season in the Southern Hemisphere, we’ll be doing a bit of a lifestyle segment on some international players.  We thought we’d start off by showing the softer side of one of the Bok squad front rowers.  We caught up with Coenie Oosthuizen and he introduced us to some of his lesser acknowledged culinary skills.

Whenever Coenie hosts visitors at his pad he is famous for serving his legendary “wors and wine” dish.  He has let us share the recipe with readers of this website.

  • Get 4 kilograms of karoo boerewors (barbecue sausage).
  • Microwave on “high” for 20 minutes (or until ecoli risk is removed)
  • Serve on paper plates with a knife and fork (this reduces dishwashing time later).
  • Get a 5 litre cardboard boxed wine from Shoprite-Checkers to serve with the wors.


Coenie has been watching both Masterchef and Top Chef in anticipation of the end of season tour. He is going to dazzle those Northerners with his kitchen skills!

  1. I am surprised he even cooks it, lseems a eat it raw type character. I have it on good authority that for the healthy, low fat option, he is partial to a Kg or two of Wallaby and Kiwi tartare.
