I love beef jerky. It's healthy, tasty, portable, and easy to make. I may be addicted to it...No, I most definitely am.
I've been making homemade jerky for years. It all began with my dad, who taught me how to make venison jerky using an old and simple recipe. We made as much as we could, but it never seemed to last very long...hmm?
Our original recipe was solid but, determined to make it even better, I branched out further; adding new flavors and refining the methods further than ever before. These days I pretty much have it down to a science and can whip up a delicious batch in no time.
Eventually my friends found out about my jerky stash. They wanted to try some. Once they tried it they wanted their own bag. I took some to work. My co-workers demanded I supply jerky for all future meetings and business trips. The point is that I've shared my jerky with many people and the vast majority of them have really enjoyed it.
So, if your recipe is so good then why are you revealing all your secrets here? Well, I don't plan to make jerky full-time and I don't have the resources to send you all a bag to try. There's also nothing really proprietary about it since it's made with a bunch of common ingredients you can find at your local grocery store. So why not? I hope you will give it a shot, enjoy some with your friends and family, and improve upon it even further.
