Droewors Recipe

This perfect droewors recipe has great childhood memories. My wife and I have been making our own droewors for over 15 years now. This droewors recipe never fails, provided you follow the instructions and guidelines carefully.

droewors is usually made from a combination of ground beef and mutton tail fat. The best time to make droewors is during the cool dry months. From the end of autumn to the start of spring, over the winter period. If you make droewors in humid areas it is best to use a food dehydrator. There are many homemade biltong and droewors dryers available online.

We have experimented and tried many different droewors ingredients to come up with the best droewors recipe. The trick is to get the balance right, not too salty, yet, shiny and tasty. This droewors recipe gives you the perfect balance to the look and taste of the droewors.
