    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tbsp bicarb
    • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    • 40 grams whole coriander seeds, lightly toasted and crushed
    • 1 Malt vinegar

    Cut meat into strips (with the grain), about 2cm thick.

    Combine salt, sugar,bicarb, pepper and coriander.

    Rub mixture into meat strips.

    Pack meat into plastic or earthenware container, thicker pieces at the bottom.

    Allow meat to stand a maximum of 12 hours.

    Lightly dip the meat in vinegar before hanging.
