Biltong (High Protein Air Dried Beef Snack): Min-250g

£11.50

We’ve been butchers for over 40 years, which is why we make our biltong with the utmost care and attention to detail.

Our award-winning Biltong and Droewors(Dry Wors) are the embodiment of a 40-year love affair with meat.

Our Biltong and Droewors(Dry Wors) have won many awards in South Africa. 

Our beef biltong does not have any certification from Halal or Kosher, but we only use 100% premium quality beef, so you don’t need to worry!

Biltong is one of the most popular snacks in South Africa, and it can be traced back to Dutch settlers looking for new ways to preserve food on long journeys. 

Unlike jerky, which has been heat-treated, this dried beef goes through a natural air-drying process that can take up to five days.

The process of drying beef biltong is typically a lengthy and complicated one, with many variables to consider. 

Therefore, to ensure the best possible outcome for our products, we follow these steps: 

  1. We tenderise all meat before beginning any other form of preparation – this ensures that there will be no chewy or tough pieces when it comes time for slow-drying.
  2. We carefully control humidity and airflow during the duration of drying so as not to affect taste quality.
  3. The biltong’s flavours can then combine harmoniously over an extended period without being overpowered by too much moisture from speedily dried meats which often result in unpleasant off-tastes.”

We coat our beef biltong with our award-winning recipe spices, which includes coriander seeds and peppercorns, among many other ingredients.

Easy biltong recipe

BILTONG INGREDIENTS

  • 2,5 kg meat (venison, beef or ostrich)
  • 40 grams coriander seeds
  • 40 grams salt
  • 40 grams milled black pepper

BILTONG PREPARATION

  • Cut the meat, we like to use beef silverside, into long strips of about 2.5cm’s thick with a large sharp knife.
  • You can sprinkle brown vinegar or Worcestershire sauce on both sides of the meat strips if you want cured meat.
  • Roast the coriander seeds in a dry frying pan to bring out their fantastic flavour. 
  • Crush lightly with a pestle and mortar, mix them with salt and pepper, then sprinkle over some of this mixture when layering it between layers of meat strips. 
  • Make sure you season each layer before adding another one!
  • Refrigerate for a day, don’t worry about mixing every couple of hours. The meat will still absorb all the flavours in one go.
  • Hang the beef to dry for five days in your biltong dryer or a spot with plenty of airflows
  • Dry meat in a place with good ventilation; paper clips can be used as makeshift hanging hooks if needed.
  • Drying time depends on the weather and whether you prefer your biltong crisp or moist.
