    Real South African Biltong!
    Biltong in Rockey's Biltong maker


    The best thing since sliced bread!
    Rockey's 5kg Biltong Maker


    This is a basic Biltong recipe, which lends itself to any number of variations for those who want to experiment until they have created their “Perfect Biltong”.


    • 2 kg beef or venison (silverside, topside or such)(London Broil)
    • 3 cups coarse salt (not table salt or sea salt but the big lumpy salt)
    • 2 cups soft brown sugar
    • 5 ml bicarbonate of soda (this softens the meat)
    • 2.5 ml coarsely ground black pepper
    • 12.5 ml coarsely ground roasted coriander seeds
    • 1.5 cups brown vinegar mixed with 100ml Worcestershire sauce.


    • Cut the meat into strips of approximately 1cm thickness.
    • Layer in a bowl with the vinegar mix for ½ hour.
    • Mix all dry spices together.
    • Roll meat in the mixed dry spices in a CLEAN bowl.
    • Allow meat to draw in its own brine for 3 hours.(thicker pieces to the bottom)
    • Remove meat and put back into vinegar mix for +/- 10 minutes.
    • Remove again and wipe meat with same vinegar to make sure NO SALT sticks to the meat.
    • Squeeze meat with your hand to get rid of as much liquid as possible.
    • Hang until ready.


    Before soaking the meat use half vinegar and half dry red wine or add 100 ml lemon juice to the vinegar/wine mixture. Before hanging make a mixture of ¼ coarsely ground black pepper and ¾ ground coriander. For those who like it HOT, sprinkle some peri-peri of your choice over the meat before hanging.


    In the BILTONG MAKER it will take 2-4 days to be ready!
    Under the rafters it will take a bit longer and watch out for flies!


    To make the perfect roasted ground coriander seeds do the following: Place whole seeds in a hot DRY frying pan. Allow to singe slightly shaking the pan regularly. Crack seeds with a fork (smell the aroma!!)
