Yummy, right? Except I dare you to find some at the store that isn’t absolutely LOADED with a crazy amount of all sorts of chemicals and nasties. Sugar, Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Soy Sauce, Monosodium Glutamate, Fermented Soy Beans, Maltodextrin, Hydrolized Corn Gluten (REALLY?), Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Erythorbate, these are some of the ingredients that are commonly listed on packages of beef jerky.
I know you can find good quality, all natural jerky out there, but it isn’t that easy a task, especially not in my part of the world, apparently.
Plus, when you do find it, it really doesn’t come cheap…
So I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my very own meaty snack. Good news is, it’s not complicated at all. The process does require a little bit of time and yes, it is a lot more work than simply ripping open a package of the ready made stuff…
But biting into a piece of chewy jerky that YOU just made in your very own kitchen, especially when it’s still slightly warm, has something so satisfying and so rewarding about it, I can’t even explain it. It feels like you just performed some kind of inexplicable magic trick!
You’re like: WHOA DUDE! THIS IS JERKY! I MEAN REAL JERKY, MAN, AND I, ME, MOI, MADE THIS! And the look on your friends face when you offer them a piece and tell them you made it? Priceless! Let’s take a look at how it’s done, or at least how I did it, shall we?
