Bastirma is characterized by its bold garlic flavor with exceptional leanness, tenderness and nutritional value.
Pastirma, pastourma, bastirma, basterma or basturma is a highly seasoned, air-dried cured beef of Anatolian origin, which is now part of the cuisines of the former Ottoman countries.
Cured meat has been made in Anatolia for centuries, since at least the Byzantine period, and called apokti, and some authors claim that pastirma is an extension of that tradition, of which there is reasonable evidence.
There are various stories about the origin of pastırma, none well documented. One story gives its origins as the city of Kayseri, where there was a Byzantine dish called paston. Paston is defined as 'salted (meat)'and apparently eaten both raw and cooked in stews.
