Biltong or Beef Jerky

Biltong or Beef Jerky is produced from sweet, mildly cured and marinated strips of denuded prime beef topside. In an air drying process which is complemented with a hint of natural smoke, the beef strips are extensively dehydrated. This traditional processing and spicing of meat has its origin in North America and South Africa, where this method of preservation was used in the pioneering days to store meat for long periods without refrigeration.
