    Talking Let the hunting begin

    Good Day All

    I've been following, investigating, searching, you name it on this web site and forums for the last month now. Probably addicted to it. What a great site and interactive forums. Loads of info, tips and advise. The picture gallery is only to get jealous of.

    Wer'e leaving early tomorrow morning for our first hunting trip for the season. Absolutely looking forward to it and can't wait.

    How about some biltong recipes. Or have they been carried over from genenartion to generation and is highly confidential.

    Regards

    Mafuta

    Alright. Here is my recipe and process developed through trial and error and incredible consultation.

    Only caution is watch the amount of time the meat is left in the brine. It can become to salty very quickly.


    2Kg Meat
    Sliced 1/2 inch thick strips

    Rinse 1:
    Rinsed meat in 1/10 White Vinegar and Water
    10 Minutes

    Spice:
    Corriander 1 cup whole
    Black Pepper 1/2 cup black pepper
    Garlic 1 TBSp

    Cure:
    Large Coarse Salt 500mg
    Baking Soda 2 Tsp
    Brown Sugar 150mg

    Rinse 2:
    100% White Vinegar Rinse


    Process:

    Rinse 1
    Meat Sliced into Strips
    Meat Rinsed in 10% solution for 10 minutes

    Spice:
    Grind All Spices in grinder course grind

    Cure:
    Mix/Blend ingredients in food processor to get the ingredients into homogeneous mixture.
    Coat the meat completely in spice
    Allow to sit for a few minutes
    Remove any excess by rubbing lightly

    Place in a container
    Alternating Layers of Brine and meat in container
    Layer of Brine in the bottom.
    Cover meat in Container
    2 HOURS MAX

    Rinse 2
    Place Vinegar in a container
    Drain meat from brine
    Dip meat into vinegar bath to remove all salt
    Allow to drain
    (Note Baking Sodas active)

    Sprinkle meat with remaining Spice mixture
    Layer meat and spice in container
    12 HOURS in fridge steeping

    Hang to dry until reaches desired consistency.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!

    Not for those of us who like Biltong.
