Raw meat is RED.  Biltong is CURED therefore ok to eat.

No problem.  You buy it and I will eat it for you then we call you GAWIE

Ok, so to most South African born manne, I'm a philistine because I can't allow myself to like biltong.

I ate some once and yeah, it was ok I guess. But.

It's still raw meat and I just can't get my head around that.
  I am not RSA born, I have no issue with it being raw meat, I do eat biltong but it’s not some wonderful delicacy to me as it is to the majority of RSA born conniseurs m 8)
If I had a dollar for every girl that found me unattractive, they'd eventually find me attractive.

There's biltong... and there's biltong.
Each has their own preference.

Personally I prefer kudu and beef biltong wet and without pepper or Worcestershire sauce.
Springbok and ostrich I prefer dry.

Worcestershire sauce doesn't belong on biltong at all. Salpeter, pepper and coriander with brown vinegar sprinkled over them as you "pickle" them.  Take care when dressing the meat to work along the grain of the muscles and spend some time removing prominent sinews. Use a properly sharp knife and this is easy.

Out of curiosity do you eat salami and other cured meats?

Interesting to read all different opinions on biltong  :lol8:

I have made a lot of biltong on Gough Island, and I grew up with the 'conservative recipes of brown vinegar, coarse salt and coriander. Mature over 2 days and hang.

Then I decided to experiment a bit since the meat is there, and all the spices and does not cost us anything. I made chilly bites (very good) and all sort of concoctions (not always good)

Then I tried Worchestersause with the vinegar and coarse salt and I was sold. If I ever get to make biltong again, that is the recipe!  :thumleft:

The REAL Worchester sauce is made from fermented fish.  The original ingredients of bottle of Worcestershire sauce sold were - Barley malt vinegar, Spirit vinegar, Molasses, Sugar, Salt, Anchovies, Tamarind extract, Onions, Garlic, Spice and Flavourings.  The "spice" and "flavourings" are believed to include cloves, soy sauce, lemons, pickles and peppers.[8]
(from Wikipedia)

The stuff you get here in ZA is NOT !  Check the bottle.

Look worchestersauce does taste nice, but it completely overpowers the taste of the meat so my go to rule of thumb is, good quality meat = no worchestersauce. If it is not the best quality then sure.

Hijack - Schmijack…  :peepwall: :imaposer:


Thanks to all for keeping this thread alive while I have been "away"

My computer died. Then I got it fixed, then it keeled over again. Then I got it going again... letrs see how long it lasts  this time.


Also been fuckoff busy at work. I mean REALLY busy... get home completely exhausted.

And I burned my leg. Due to stupidity. And with a dose of tiredness thrown in for good measure. I got a bad scratch on my upper inner thigh, it was deep and bled a lot. And it was dirty. So, falling back on my years of experience as a paramedic I stopped the bleeding with a piece of toilet paper. Then I used surgical spirits to disinfect the wound. Then I applied some iodine tincture to a dressing and strapped it to the wound as it had started bleeding again. It was burning a bit, I just thought it was the iodine in the open wound and it would stop soon.

Wrong. The iodine tincture was burning my skin off. Literally. Skin burned right off.  :eek7:

I now have a 50mm x 100mm (size of the dressing) area on my inner thigh that has no skin left on it. A deep and fucking painful chemical burn wound. I am treating it with some antibiotic ointment that I got when I put my finger into the planer, and covering it all with an occlusive dressing.

But it hurts man, walking, sitting, standing... even sleeping. Fokkit...  :eek7:
