So where does it come from?
People often believe that Biltong is only made from Beef well this isn't true in any way the first Biltong we believe was made from native animals in the South African region mainly been Springbok and Kodu both readily available in the outback of SA so made the perfect Biltong. Now a days Beef is more traditionally used on areas like UK due to the massive availability and quality created by British Farmers. The idea was to preserve the meat on long trek's in the out back way before the time of Cool Boxes or the like.
The traditionally South African way of making Biltong is very simple really if you have the right conditions. You slice the meat in to large steaks using mainly Silverside cuts cover the meat in coriander salt and spices pepper with a dash of vinegar hang to dry and a few days later ta-da you have beautiful Biltong all ready to go. In SA Biltong can be found hanging in Garages drying in the open air in boxes keep outside this is due to the perfect humidity and temperatures found there here in the UK its a little different as you can imagine.
The main ingredients used are coriander and salt to create the very raw and tradition flavours that is found widely across Africa, what we have done here at The Weston Biltong Company is to create possible the widest selection of flavours of Biltong you can find anywhere.
