Beef jerky is a classic cooked and dehydrated meat snack, made with salt and a handful of different seasonings. All the moisture is sucked out of the meat, which means it can hang around safely on the shelves for a long time. Biltong, on the other hand, uses a mix of vinegar and deep, strong spices every step of the way, giving the meat that extra notch of flavour. It also packs a juicier punch, because it has a slightly higher amount of fat running through the meat. Beef jerky has less fat - hence why it can be drier (and tougher on the teeth).

When storing your biltong in a cool dry place, this will prevent it from going moldy. Freezing your biltong can make it last for a year, which is awesome. You can extend this time by simply keeping it in the fridge or by vacuum sealing it. These storage conditions will have it last for weeks or months. Biltong only starts forming molds when exposed to oxygen, therefore you need to keep it sealed until the time you want to eat it.
Biltong is made from meat, this is because it is easy to get from any butcher and provides the best meat needed for the recipes. The excellent beef for quality biltong is the finest cuts from fillet, sirloin, or streaks from the hip such as silverside. Biltong is strictly made from soft beef, other parts can be used but the results are not great as it will be chewier.

I purchased these as a birthday gift for my Biltong loving partner. unfortunately I have now had to buy him a pair of trainers to burn off the calories. :) After seeing the bags he said he would just have a little taste but within 5 days he had demolished both bags. He loved them. He said if he had to choose a favourite, the chilli just had the edge over the Original. He also said the Biltong is up there with the best he has ever had. It was flavoursome, juicy and delicious.We will definitely be purchasing more from you. So happy I came across your site. Thank you.
My husband is a personal trainer ans I’m a teacher. We lead very busy lives with 3 children to juggle as well as full-time jobs. We try to practise a mainly animal-based diet and shop as sustainably as we can when it comes to meat. Ember Biltong ticks all the boxes for us: sustainably sourced, no sugar, delicious and reasonably priced! And with the subscription, it turns up at our door every 4 weeks so I don’t have to remember to order more! Perfect!
Thoroughly enjoyed this. Hard to keep it away from my South African and Zim friends and even from my vegetarian wife!
I’m impressed with the quality of beef used - good flavour, tender and tasted fresh. I do have a problem though... trying to make sure my 3 sons leave me some!
