5 tasty ways to get creative with biltong


Although biltong may be a delicious snack on its own, there are several recipes floating around the internet which show that it is not just a healthy snack; it can form part of an even healthier meal!

Bull and Cleaver decided to forage through the internet to find our best pick of recipes showing that delicious and nutritious can in fact form part of the same meal.

Biltong Salad

Salads are famously known as being a healthy meal. You can’t really go wrong with an assortment of your favourite fresh ingredients. Whether it’s the crisp crunch of carrots or cucumber, or your choice of creamy cheese, your body is enjoying that salad just as much as you are.

Now humans are notoriously creatures of habit, so adding biltong to a salad may seem ludicrous to some, but you can be sure those who were brave enough to try it have never looked back.

Biltong can be crunchy, or soft and juicy – so give it a try and get creative. If you’re getting tired of the classic tuna or chicken salad we’ve become so accustomed to, a biltong salad will be a welcomed changed.

Biltong Soup

 

Calling North America’s winter's harsh is perhaps a bit of an understatement, but it is no secret that a hearty soup can seemingly make the snow melt away.

Biltong is the perfect ingredient to add to soup with its rich meaty flavour, complementing the other ingredients with its saltiness.

Cheese, mushroom and biltong go together like white on snow. We suggest you enjoy this meal by the fireplace on a cold, snowy day:
