What Is Biltong?

Biltong is a form 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, however the typical ingredients, taste and production processes differ. The word biltong is from the Dutch bil ("rump") and tong ("strip" or "tongue").

Placed an order earlier this week and arrived early today. Tried the gym pack in original flavour! All I can say is WOW! I've tried lots of store bought Jerky and Biltong, even some from Muscle Food's different available ones, but this is head and shoulders better! I gave some of the gym pack out to the guys in the office to try and they were blown away also!

Just tried the sample packs I requested too, all were superb and good portion to be able to see what you make of each one.

I will gather my thoughts and try to narrow down the choices and order some bigger packs of some of the flavoured ones.

I was lucky enough to win the FREE BILTONG draw.

Biltong arrived swiftly on the day I was told to expect it

It arrived perfectly packaged and fit for human consumption!!!!

We had original biltong, dry wors and chutney flavoured biltong to try

Of the 3 types I would highly recommend the chutney flavour. It added a nice sweet element to the biltong that i would never had considered trying before

Thanks Biltong South

What Is Droewors (Drywors)

Droewors (/ˈdrəvɔːrs/Afrikaans literally "dry sausage") is a Southern African snack food, based on the traditional,coriander-seed spiced boerewors sausage.[1] It is usually made from dun wors (Afr. "thin sausage") rather than dik wors ("thick sausage"), as the thinner sausage dries more quickly and is thus less likely to spoil before it can be preserved. If dikwors is to be used, it is usually flattened to provide a larger surface area for drying.

The recipe used for these dried sausages is similar to that for boerewors, though pork and veal are usually replaced bybeef, as the former can go rancid when dried, mutton fat replaces the pork fat used in boerewors. Drying makes the sausage ideal for unrefrigerated storage.[2]

Droëwors is unusual among dried meats in being dried quickly in warm, dry conditions, unlike traditional Italian curedsalumi, which are dried slowly in relatively cold and humid conditions. A further difference is that droëwors does not contain curing agent as found in a traditional cured sausage. A direct result of this is that droëwors should not be kept in moist conditions as mold can begin to form more easily than would happen with a cured sausage.

This product is related both in name and in nature to the Dutch droge worst a.k.a. metworst.

What Is Boerewors?

Boerewors ([ˈbuːrəvors]) is a type of sausage which originated in South Africa, is an important part of South African cuisine and is popular across Southern Africa. The name is derived from the Afrikaans words boer ("farmer") and wors("sausage"). Boerewors must contain at least 90 percent meat, and always contain beef, as well as lamb, pork, or a mixture of lamb and pork. The other 10% is made up of spices and other ingredients. Not more than 30% of the meat content may be fat. Boerewors may not contain any "mechanically recovered" meat (meat derived through a process where meat and bone are mechanically separated).
