Masala rump steak gatsby

A lip-smacking, mouth-cramming gatsby. This full-on-flavour goes all glam with rump steak, parmesan, mayo and atchar. Sumptuous and swag-ilicious as it may be, it still gives “slap tjips” a starring role.

Wine pairing

A big statement dish demands a big statement wine. Nederburg’s The Winemasters Cabernet Sauvignon (an essential ingredient of the riotous sauce) delivers. Devilishly divine dark red and black berry tastes, some cocoa, and a light twist of pepper on the nose and palate make this wine the perfect plus one.
