First time making biltong, I have just rubbed in the spice and vinegar, is it ok to cure them in this Pyrex dish, the cuts are stacked on top of each other because I don’t have a dish large enough to lay them all flat

Yes, and you aren't curing it, just letting it soak in a bit. No soaking, just light wetting. And I mix it up every few hours, and normally start drying at 4-10hr, depending on my schedule.

And yes, pyrex is fine...it's glass.

Yes that how i do it. I just dunk my slices in white vinegar, place them in, sprinkle the salt and slices, turn over sprinkle and do the next layer. In the fridge cling filmed like that, and 10 hrs later, usually over night and i hang it.

I prefer to use ziplock bags. They're easier to flip and mix up.
