Thank you to Game and Flames for this delicious recipe.
If working from home has taught us one thing, it is our ability to snack. We have tried them all! from the countless trips to the fridge for just another slither of cheese to finding it next to impossible to have a cup of tea without five biscuits. While Schöffel’s range of jeans including the Emma 3/4 Jean and the James Jean are forgiving and outrageously comfortable, we have been wondering if there is a healthy snack out there that we can create at home that might help us feel less guilty.
This recipe from Game & Flames seems to be the answer. Biltong is high in natural protein as well as being a good source of vital minerals including zinc, iron, magnesium and vitamin B-12. It’s also quite filling, and you can make your own at home if you follow this simple recipe.
You will need:
- Around 2kg of trimmed venison that is at least 1 inch thick
- 2.5 tbsp. salt
- 2tbsp. ground black pepper
- 2tbsp. ground coriander seed
- Half a tbsp. brown sugar
- Cider Vinegar
To begin, lay the meat out in a big dish and give it a quick splash of cider vinegar. Cai says you can use any type, but some people prefer using the malt. Next, throw on the rub you have created with the rest of the ingredients being careful to cover all the meat. Transfer your dish to the fridge and leave it to absorb the seasoning for 4 hours.
When you take it out of the fridge, pat dry using some kitchen towel before hanging in a clean and ventilated space that is around 24-30 degrees. You need good air flow to help with the drying.
Your biltong will be ready in three days!
