Spicy dried beef is one of those things that you may never have tried until now. This is easy to prepare and cook and very tasty. Ideal as a snack as whilst filling, it is not fattening. the longer you leave the beef to marinade, the better.  The flavour becomes more intense so marinate a minimum of 7 hours but ideally overnight.  This is especially handy when you are in a rush or on the go and have no time to cook. Also it is ideal when you just need something light to keep you going until lunch or dinner.
