This is one of the favorite foods of Malagasy. Dried beef is cut in strips and broiled over a charcoal fire. If you would like to make it, purchase round steak cut 1/4-inch thick. Cut the meat in pieces about 4 inches x 2 inches, thread the strips on a fine strong cord and hang the cord up as you would a small clothesline. The meat will become quite dry in a few hours. Put the strips over a charcoal brazier so that the meat dries to a crispness but does not burn. Remove the meat immediately from the fire as it crisps. This is a great delicacy in Madagascar. It is usually eaten with a watery cornmeal mush for breakfast.
