Moroccan Preserved Meat Recipe?

JessEvans | Nov 13, 201504:54 PM     3

Hi everyone,

I'm experimenting with various ways of drying and preserving meat. I recently came across a description of a Moroccan traditional food product similar to a confit that is called khlea or khlii. It's make with either lamb or beef, and the general outline seems to be grind it or cut it in chunks or strips, then marinade it, then dehydrate it, then cook it in fat and store it packed in the fat, like a confit. It is supposed to keep for up to two years without refrigeration!

I have a lamb in my freezer and this seems like a fun kitchen project and a great potential camping/backpacking food, but I can't find any actual recipes anywhere. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.
