Have you heard of biltong? If not, you're in luck — you have a lot of savory snacking in store. Biltong is basically a dried meat. It can be beef, poultry, fish, or game meats, as long as it’s appropriately flavored, air-dried, and rendered absolutely delicious. Biltong has actually been around for centuries with its roots tracing back to South Africa
Biltong is not unlike beef jerky, but also not like beef jerky.
Both are dense, dried meat products (typically beef, but various types of meat can be used). Both were originally made by hunters and nomads as a means of stockpiling food. Both taste amazing with a cold bottle of beer. This is where the similarities end.
