    Biltong

    I decided that it was time to make some biltong ( South African beef jerky type dried meat)
    It was rather successful!

    I donít have a set recipe, I change up the spice mix for some variety, but the method is the same.
    I slice the meat (topside) then I spice it and layer it in a Tupperware container and sprinkle it with some brown vinegar, then I cover it and leave it in the fridge for 24 hours.

    Next I rinse the meat in a mix of hot water and brown vinegar.

    Then I spice the meat again and hang it in my biltong box. Itís usually ready in 3-5 days depending on the thickness of the cuts.

    My usual spice mix is coarse salt, pepper corns, coriander and chilli flakes, with a bit of turmeric.
