74novaman,

Are you from someplace in Africa?

The only mention of 'biltong' I've seen were all located there.

How long do you let it dry and do you use cheese cloth to keep the flys off or ...?

Thanks!
Nope, I just like trying different foods.

I built a sealed box with air holes covered wish mesh, and a fan to keep the air moving that I hung the meat in to dry. I cut those pieces at 4 days, and I've got a few more to cut today.

I've had Parisa a few times and really like it. But I've only eaten it from meat markets I know and trust.

I've had Dzuik's, it was the first one I tried. The owner is a friend of a friend. And he brought some to my friend's birthday party.

I think of it like Beef Ceviche.

Never had Muskrat. But I've had the rest. Squirrel is my favorite breakfast meat. Rabbit and dumplins beat chicken and dumplins any day. And Racoon is delicious cooked as a roast with potatoes and carrots, or bbq'd. I've heard it's great with sweet potatoes too, but haven't had it that way yet.

Beef carpaccio with capers, sea salt, ground pepper, arugula and a small drizzle of oil and red wine vinegar. Eat immediately.

In Lebanon we have a special dish of raw meat (usually lamb ribeye). It is pounded in a carved rock. Then, seasoned with non-hot spices and some Mentha longifolia (horse mint), called Habak in Lebanon.
It is made immediately after the animal is slaughtered. Usually, the early morning of a Holiday.

I would not have expected that with lamb! As far as beef goes I like my steaks very rare and I've had Steak Tartare on several occasions.
Remember, when i was growing up we drank from a hose and occasionally ate mud and sand, among many, MANY other things (see DeltaBoy's post). My immune systems is probably much stronger than today's youths'.

Maxwell,
I am certain, you can use beef (less fat) as well as lamb. The standard is the most tender red meat available. For some breed of lambs, its meat has gamey smell other do not.

I came here to post a similar comment.
Ya beat me to it. :lol:

Grilled Romaine with Caesar dressing is pretty good though. ;-)

Salmon is WAAAAAAY better-tasting uncooked. But, it's harder to find sushi-quality salmon since it's shipped refrigerated, not frozen. Asian groceries (H-Mart is awesome) have lots of fish (some of it still swimming) I'd eat uncooked. When I cook salmon at home, I only cook it to a point where the middle is warm, but still raw-colored. I find salmon that's been cooked through to be inedible.
TOTALLY agree! I’m almost disgusted by cooked salmon!! Love it raw! Just got back from a week in Japan...so many goodies!!

Love carpaccio and tartare (even had it at a trade show in Germany...not something I’d do in the USA!!).

Horse is quite tasty too!! Step outside your boundaries, explore, taste..!

After my parasitology class, I don’t eat anything uncooked.

In the US we don't eat domesticated animals and pets, at least not yet. So tell me PUCKER, do you also eat dog and cat? :shock:
