Many countries have similar products but none are exactly like biltong and so representative of the taste of South Africa. It's not a pretty process or a cheap one as you lose about 50% of the weight of the uncured meat.
Etymology: From Afrikaans, from bil ("buttock, hindquarter"), from Middle Dutch bille, + tong ("tongue"), from Middle Dutch tonghe.
