beef jerky

What is Jerky?

Jerky is a type of dried meat that has been cured and preserved to extend its shelf life. It is typically made from beef, but can also be made from other meats such as pork, turkey, venison, or even fish.

Jerky is a popular snack food that is high in protein and low in fat. It is typically eaten as a snack or on-the-go meal, especially by outdoor enthusiasts like hikers and campers.

How is jerky made?

Here’s how jerky is typically made:

  1. Select the meat: Choose a lean cut of meat, such as flank steak, that is free of fat and gristle.
  2. Prepare the meat: Trim any fat or connective tissue from the meat and slice it against the grain into thin strips, usually about 1/8 inch thick.
  3. Marinate the meat: Place the meat strips in a mixture of salt, spices, and an acidic liquid (such as vinegar, citrus juice, or wine) to flavor the meat and help tenderize it.
  4. Dry the meat: There are several methods for drying meat, including air-drying, smoking, or dehydrating. The meat is dried at a low temperature for several hours until it is completely dry and has a chewy texture.
  5. Store the jerky: Once the jerky is fully dried, it can be stored in an airtight container or vacuum-sealed bag for up to several months.

Is jerky cooked or raw?

Jerky is cooked not raw, it is dried to remove moisture and make it less susceptible to spoilage. Actually, the meat is often heated to a high enough temperature during the drying process to kill any bacteria that may be present.

What can people make jerky from?

In addition to beef, people can make jerky from a variety of meats, including pork, turkey, venison, and fish. Different types of meat may require different marinating times and drying methods, so it’s important to follow a recipe or guidelines for each specific type of meat.
