What is Bobotie?????
Bobotie is a South African meatloaf that is filled with delicious spices and topped with an awesome Fruit Chutney! I linked the recipe to my fruit chutney so it would be easy to find.
We had this dish when we were sailing in Saint Martin with Trade-winds. Manu, our first mate made this delicious dish for lunch one day and I asked her how to make it. So, this is my version of how she made it. Thank you, Manu for the exposure to this dish and new food!

What Kind Of Meat Can I Use In Bobotie?
I have read online that it can be made from beef, pork or lamb or a combination of those meats. I made mine out of beef, but I think we would have loved it with lamb. However, our guests don’t love lamb as much as we do so I made it with beef.
I absolutely love the smell of lamb cooking and can picture the scent in my head with all of the spices and chutney added! Next time I am making it with lamb for sure!
