WHAT IS BILTONG?

BILTONG IS A VARIETY OF DRIED, CURED MEAT THAT ORIGINATED IN SOUTH AFRICA.

Various types of meat are used to produce it, ranging from beef and game meats to fillets of ostrich from commercial farms. It is typically made from raw fillets of meat cut into strips following the grain of the muscle, or flat pieces sliced across the grain. It is similar to beef jerky in that they are both spiced, dried meats. The typical ingredients, taste and production processes differ, the main difference being that biltong is dried and subsequently sliced whereas jerky is sliced prior to drying. The word biltong is from the Dutch bil (“rump”) and tong (“strip” or “tongue”).

Here at Smally’s, we only ever use the best silverside cuts from UK and Irish grass fed beef. You will be able to understand why when you have your first taste!
