what cut of beef to use

Discussion in 'Making Jerky' started by jakeseddon, Jun 3, 2009.

  1. hi,
    i was wandering if someone could tell me which cut of meat is the cheapest suitable for making jerky/biltong. My local butcher suggested i use a topside or silverside but at about £5 a pound its not the cheapest, i am new to this so im bound to mess it up, so using a cheaper cut would make the blow a bit easier to take. i hope someone can help.

    Round and flank, both good cheap cuts for jerking.
