The meat of the South African Zebra is dark red and somewhat sweeter than beef with a slighly gamey tang.

Zebra Steak with Apples

Serves four


0.75kg zebra steak, 2 cooking apples,

20g brown sugar, 25g butter,

olive oil, 25ml lime juice,

a dash of brown rum, and freshly ground black pepper.


Peel and slice the apples. Sprinkle the slices of apple with brown sugar, then place them in a pan. Gently soften them in butter. Keep the apples warm while the steaks are seasoned and fried until pink.

Once they are pink, take the steaks out of the pan and keep them warm. In the meantime cool the pan with lime juice and rum. Pour the sauce onto the plate and then carefully arrange the meat on the sauce and cover with slices of apple.

Potato croquettes are delicious served with this.
