springbok carpaccio


Springbok is the national animal of South Africa. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but you’ll also find them on many menus around the country. During a recent trip to Johannesburg, I encountered the meat numerous times, typically as an appetizer served carpaccio-style. The meat has a beautiful red color and is low in fat, with the flavors reflective of the animal’s wild grass and herb diet.
