Biltong Recipes

For the past 2 years I have really enjoyed making my own biltong, for the most part is that I can decide on the flavour and how wet/dry I like it. I thought we could share some of our hints and tips and spices used to make that awesome 'stuk'

I use this pre-mixed spice most of the time;

Brown Sugar
Worcestershire Sauce
Cayenne Pepper (spicy)
Ground Coriander

My latest batch;

Looks very nice.
I also do my own biltong. Use Hirsh's Kalahari spice, and lots of vinegar. Lots of "talking" with the spices and meat and vinegar for 3 days.
Then hanging up and letting dry...

Now this sounds like fun idea. What do you use, beef? I had the opportunity to make my first biltong last year when I shared a rooibok with a friend. My back was killing me after cutting up all the meat. I can’t remember but I also bought biltong pre-mix from Crown International. I’ll have a look over the week-end for the name but to me it was pretty awesome. There was nothing fancy about my biltong as I only used brown vinegar together with the spice. I still have my plastic containers and hooks stowed away ready for action. You will have to lead the way as I’m still new in this but eager to learn.
PS. Your biltong does look good. :thumbup: :clap:
