Not if you remove them before eating?

Or just eat them with it, they're tasty anyway.

wouldnt it just be easier to grind them up in a mortar and pestal and put them in your marinade as a powder?
or just use a good ground coriander seed?

not trying to prove you wrong cause i obviously havent done it before, im just trying to understand the logic.

They are partially crushed in a mortar and pestle, but Going fully powdered would be overpowering and unpleasant IMO.

Speaking of unpleasant I think the latest batch may be a fail, took too long for the drying process to kick off properly and I suspect the meat had tainted. Probably a combination of a badly timed wet day (humidity) and exceeding the biltong box's capacity. Lesson learned I think.

Second attempt in SpaceMonkey's You Beaut Biltong Box:



Topside roast, sliced by the butcher. Sliced the first lot myself, lucky to still have all my fingers.

Soaked in cider vinegar (with a splash of balsamic), and seasoned with brown sugar, sea salt, black pepper, coriander powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder and crushed chilli. Here's hoping for great success.

EDIT: That foil was only there while the biltong was still dripping, it's since been removed.

Spoiler:


I bought one of these little dudes:



So I could use coriander seeds and peppercorns instead of the ground alternatives. It smelled amazing, but given my time again I'd put the peppercorns in first by themselves, and give them a good whiz, because the majority seemed to make it through unscathed.

The batch I've got down at the moment is pretty tidy, I chucked a few drops of insanity sauce in the cider vinegar when I soaked the beef.

Noms.

EDIT:



Sofa king tasty when it's still a little moist (lolmoist).

Nah, I'm just a bloke with a wooden box in his backroom and too much spare time.
