Method

  • Cut the beef into "sirloin steak" size and shape pieces

  • Cover the beef in the salt & honey turn twice in a 2 hour period 

  • After the 2 hours, remove the salt & sugar and pat dry

  • Add to the wet marinate and leave for 3 hours

  • Sprinkle the baking soda on both sides of the meat and wait until all the froth has disappeared, then remove from the wet marinate and pat dry

  • Crush the spices coarsely

  • Cover the beef in the dry marinate

  • Weigh the beef

  • Place in a dry, well ventilated place for 3 to 7 days

  • NOTE: when the beef weighs between 30 and 50% less, it is ready

  • Thinly slice and it's ready
