    The most primitive, and possibly most delicious method to preserving food... Biltong and Beef Jerky have been around for as long as mankinds been trying to preserve. It's history and uses can spread across expeditions, new world voyages, and amazing dishes....

    Lets talk about it...






    And as for starters...

    A.D. Livingston is the God of Cookbooks regarding beef jerky/preserving meats... Look up his books.







    Then a personal recipe...

    Joey's Beef Jerky Recipe

    What you'll need

    Half Cup of Kikkoman Soy Sauce
    Two Teaspoons of Salt
    1/6th a Cup of Banana Pepper Juice[Dice up some peppers into small pieces... It's good for you.]
    Splash of Lemon Juice[or any Citrus Fruit]
    1/4th a Cup of Water
    Four Tsp. of Brown Sugar or Raw Sugar

    Marination Time: 10 Hours to 1 Day.

    Lay down some paper towels and begin taking out the strips of meat from the marination, and lay them down. Tenderize the juices into the meat, and then open up some blinds and put the meat near a window with respective sunlight. Allow the meat to sunbathe for about 15-20 minutes, and then proceed to put it into whatever drying method you are using.

    Note: The reason I'm saying to not pad-dry is because you'll end up getting pieces of fabric/lint inside your beef jerky, and nothing is worse then having actual leather in beef jerky.

    beef jerky is god's gift to mankind

    beef jerky made from scratch is something that you have to at least try once to see what it is like - it's unique and distinctive taste is nigh-unforgettable

    I really like beef jerky and would love to make some but everyone else in the household is a pansy and will get angry if I try to make some.

    I would also like to try biltong, I've read about it before and it sound really nice. I think there's a South African community centre somewhere in my city.

    I can't imagine why people would get aggravated over a snack, but you could always make a fake guise that it's an assignment on how humans preserved food.

    You can use an oven on a very low setting with the door slightly open to dry beef for jerky/biltong. I don't know the exact settings, as they can vary with the oven you use, but a bit of probing will yield the specifics.

    Try Wild West Beef Jerky
    Had a bag last night, 2 tesco :(

    Might try this stuff though.

    http://biltongdirect.co.uk/biltong/o.../prod_216.html

    15 bags worth of 50g in that (i.e. the same size as the wild west brand)

    comes in a 7 cheaper.

    There is a 1kg version for 27 though im not sure how ill separably bag it. May get some air lock bags off amazon or something,

    May just make some, looks simple enough

    150F for 4-4 hours works pretty well for me.

    I love beef jerky but it's ridiculously expensive for me.


    A small packet can cost like $3-$3.50.

    a pack like that is about 6 dollars at convenience stores, probably a little less at the supermarkets. homemade is the shiz if a little bland depending on flavoring. and way cheap, costs about 1 bullet. :)
