Biltong, a form of dried, cured meat, is extremely versatile and therefore easy to integrate into a number of different dishes. For starters, the type of meat used to make biltong varies. While beef is the most common choice, as it is inexpensive and easy to obtain, biltong can also be made from game, ostrich, chicken and fish, meaning it will pair well with just about anything.
Biltong pasta dishes
Biltong is also diverse in the way it can be prepared. Biltong can be dry and crumbly, which would allow it to integrate well with a salad. Or it can be tender, chewy and soft, which makes it a perfect addition to a pasta dish.
Creamy pasta with tender biltong takes only 25 minutes to prepare and serves up to four people. The recipe calls for 200g of moist, sliced biltong, which is mixed with linguini pasta, mushrooms and fresh parsley in a thick cream sauce.
