Originating in South Africa we developed a love for biltong and fine meats. In 2018 The Meat Boss was founded enabling us to share a truly authentic South African treat with you.

 

Combing the finest, authentic ingredients including carefully selected prime cuts of British and Irish silverside with the finest spice selections to create our tasty, healthy, protein biltong snacks.

 

Biltong isn’t  anything new (South Africans have been making and eating it for centuries), it’s gaining traction in The United Kingdom as a go-to snack for athletes, fitness fanatics, and just about anyone  on the hunt for a high-protein, low-sugar solution to hunger pains.

 

 Let’s start at the beginning…

What is biltong?

 

Pronounced bil, as in Bill, and tong, as in tongs.

 

Think of your favourite cured meat but healthier and tastier. That’s biltong. It is made from carefully selected cuts of silverside beef, but what makes it biltong is that it goes through a specific curing process that originated in South Africa to preserve meat before refrigerators.

 

South Africans would cover meat in spices like coriander, salt and pepper, and vinegar. Then they’d hang the meat on a hook to dry (a.k.a. cure) for several days, slice it, and BOOM—biltong!

 

The culinary opportunities go way beyond snacking—you can shred it into salads, add it to sauces, put into sandwiches, add to dips, or use as a garnish. Yes biltong can make an appearance at every culinary event.

 

Biltong is hung and air-dried for a period, making it naturally tender. It gets marinated in salt and vinegar which gives biltong its distinct taste and also cures the meat. After drying, biltong is typically sliced into small ribbons (though some traditional styles in South Africa are sliced into larger one-inch chunks). All the flavour comes from the meat, vinegar and spices.

The benefits of biltong

For starters, biltong is a great source of protein, which can help your body recover after exercise, lose weight, and absorb nutrients more efficiently. It’s also high in iron, zinc, and vitamin B12, which have been found to boost your immune system and energy.
