jerked meat


Jerky. The same thing as biltong from South Africa, consisting of narrow strips of meat cut from beef or game and ground vigorously to release the juices, then air or sun dried, salted and spiced, or smoked. It resembles an aged leather belt - and some would say tastes like it as well. It is popular with people travelling in remote areas, such as trappers and backpackers, as it is light and easily transportable and is high in protein.
