Very Very Basic Biltong
If you want the most basic, unspiced, but still quite tasty (and perfect for toddlers and little kids to nibble on) Biltong Recipe... then this is it.
(also... pretty much foolproof...)
- 1 kg Wild Game Meat You can also use beef
- 200 ml Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 cup Rough Salt
- 1 tbsp crushed peppercorns (optional)
Cut your meat into strips about 30% larger than what you want your final biltong to be
Rub the meat with salt, and lay down in a glass bowl.
Game meat is already fairly rich in flavour, but if you are using beef, or want more flavour, crush the peppercorns and use it as part of your salt rub
Cover the glass bowl and put in the refrigerator for an hour or so
Remove from refrigerator and sprinkle the vinegar over the meat (do not soak the meat in vinegar)
Remove the meat from the bowl and set hanging hooks on the ends. Place on a clean plate or bowl so that the meat doesn't soak longer in the vinegar
Hang in Biltong Drier or drying cage, and wait three to 5 days
