Biltong (South African dried and cured meat) lends big umami to this simple, crispy fried rice recipe.


  • 2 oz. Righteous Felon Black Garlic Biltong 
  • 1 cup chilled rice, (day-old is best)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Entube Curry Paste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 lime 
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed or vegetable oil 
  • 2 clove garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • thai fried onion


  1.  In a large skillet over med-high heat fry the garlic until golden, remove with a slotted spoon. Add the biltong and fry until crispy, about 2 minutes.  Stir in curry paste and cook for 1 more minute.
  2. Stir in rice and spread into an even layer, pressing down on rice with a spatula to get good contact with the pan. Let the rice crisp for about 4-5 minutes, don't stir or you will lose crunch!
  3. Add a knob of butter and stir, the butter will help crisp the rice and gives a nice nuttiness. Crisp rice a couple more minutes until brown and toasted. 
  4. Add the garlic back in, pack into a bowl and turn out on a plate (put the plate on top of filled bowl and flip).  Serve with plenty of fresh lime and crispy shallots on top. 

Pro Tip: Don't overcrowd the pan to ensure crispy rice.
