Biltong originated from the Dutch word ‘BIL’ which means rump and ‘TONG’ which means strip. Biltong is the dried meat that is the pride and joy of South Africa. Almost everyone loves biltong. Biltong has been around for ages, this dried meat never goes out of style.
There are generally two types of biltong which is beef biltong and game biltong. But as time passed people started trying new things and experimenting with other types of meat and we ended up with ostrich, pork, lamb and poultry biltong.
Biltong can be enjoyed eating plain as it is or spicing it up with some spice, from chilly to barbeque to sweet or peppery. The choices are all up to your taste buds.
