Tonight I have made the first batch of beef Jerky or biltong as we South Africans know it. I suggest if you want to try make it yourself then hop over to my other blog, under labels.
Now this reminds me of the time Maryanne and Pete from Wodonga came over to see how it's done. I got a fair sized piece of meat, sliced it up and all. We did the spice thing layered and spiced again. Kept it in the fridge overnight and finally it was ready.Pete and George had made a meatsafe just like mine only it had two shelves instead of three. now they were set to go and hang the meat which was the easy part.
A few days later they come visiting again, and I ask how the Jerky coming along, it should have been ready by now. Maryanne's face dropped and finally she comes out with the story. She had done washing and forgot to close the door after she finished hanging up the clothes outside. Their huge Rottie just could not help himself any longer somehow he got the meatsafe open and proceeded to have a feast. All she found was the little wire hooks and one very thirsty dog. He was lying outside in front of the waterbowl, drinking. Needless to say he never got any dinner that night.
We did give it another go at Jerky making Lol
It late so I better be off to bed
See ya soon
