Interesting ways to use biltong


Of course, biltong on its own is a delicious and healthy snack. But have you considered some of the other opportunities presented by this traditional South African food item?

Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Spice up a meal

Yes, biltong is a perfect snack, but why stop there? You can also use it to add a unique twist to typical family meals, such as mac and cheese, soups, or stews. You can bake it into muffins. You can use it as a sandwich filling. Or you can even use it as an incentive to eat healthier by mixing it into a salad.

  • Introduce your international friends, colleagues and neighbours to South African cuisine

If you’re a South African living abroad, it’s almost certain that you’ve been asked questions about your country’s cuisine. And what is a more typically South African food than biltong? 

Sure, you can tell people about biltong and how it’s similar to beef jerky (but obviously way better!). But that doesn’t come close to the experience of tasting it for yourself. 

And if you’re not sure what type of biltong will go down best with an international crowd? Then consider ordering the Runder Biltong Taste Box [link to Taste Box article], which has something for everyone (except vegans and vegetarians, of course).

  • Give a gift 

Biltong is a great gift for almost any occasion. As long as you can hold on to it long enough to give away, instead of eating it yourself!

  • Express your creativity

Okay, this one requires more than just some ready-made biltong. Instead, it involves making your own. It might seem a little intimidating at first, but making your own biltong can be an immensely enjoyable, satisfying, and creative experience. You get to experiment with different methods, different meats, and various combinations of flavours and spices. 

And if you think you might be too impatient to wait long enough for the biltong to dry properly? Then we’ve got you covered! We’ll deliver biltong to your door to keep you satisfied until your own batch is ready.
