South African Braai Pie | Steak Jalapeño Popper Pie

Happy New Year!!

This is something special for new year, a beautiful braai pie (BBQ puff pastry pie on the grill). This is just perfect as it is hot, the sun is shinning and everyone needs to get out for a bit . So light the fire, braai some meat, make this pie and add a salad or 2 and your summer menu is fixed, so sit back, relax and get ready for 2016, it is going to be a bumpy ride!

  • 2 rolls puff pastry, defrosted
  • ½ cup onion relish or chutney (anything sweet even sweet chilli sauce)
  • 2 packets salami
  • 2 cups left over steak, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup jalapeño slices, seeded
  • 2-3 cups grated mozzarella
  • 1 cup feta, crumbled


  1. Spray the braai grid well with baking spray on both sides
  2. Unroll one of the rolls of puff pastry onto the first grid.
  3. Spread with the onion relish or chutney.
  4. Place a layer of salami over the pastry then top with the steak, jalapeño slices and feta.
  5. Add a layer of cheese.
  6. Finish with another layer of salami and then place the second roll of puff pastry on top
  7. Using your finger tips seal the edges of the pastry as if making a pie
  8. Lightly brush with egg wash before placing on the braai and make three small incisions in the top of the pastry using a small knife to allow the steam to escape
  9. Place high on a very cool braai and allow to cook for about 20 minutes turning the pie over often.
  10. Remove from the grid by placing a cutting board on top and turning it over.
  11. Cut into slices.
