Jerky

Have you ever had jerky before? My favorite jerky is beef from Jack Link's premium cuts. It's yummy! The problem is I find it a bit pricey. It cost $8.50 per pack.
The word "jerky" comes from the Quechua term charqui, which means to burn (meat). Jerky is meat that has been cut into strips, trimmed of fat, marinated in a spicy, salty, or sweet rub or liquid, and dried or smoked with low heat (usually under 70 °C/160 °F) or is occasionally just salted and sun-dried. The result is a salty, savory, or semisweet snack that can be eaten fresh, or be stored for a long time without refrigeration.

Jerked meat was one of the first human-made products and was a crucially important food preservation technique for survival.

First time I heard about the jerky meat. Para sigurong yung ginagawa sa probinsiya na inaasnan ang karne at ipini preserve sa lata. Masarap siguro ang lasa niyan. Thanks for the informative post. God bless you all always.

I am a jerky junky and ever ytime my husband would buy some, he would hide it from me so I won't eat all at one setting. hahaha... my favorite is Elk Jerky from Colorado. Boy oh boy, it was expensive, but totally worth it. Delicious and tender. Yum!
