We are so excited! We are in the middle of making our first batch of homemade beef jerky in a LONG time! My husband used to make homemade beef jerky and turkey jerky….but somehow, life happens. You have kiddos and they have schedules and all of a sudden you realize it has been WAY too long since you used your dehydrator. SO we bought some yummy flank steak at Costco and went to work. My husband gave taught me a good lesson this weekend….you don’t want to marinade fresh beef jerky in fats (oils) ~ BECAUSE, they will go rancid more quickly. Good tip!!!
We decided to refer to a recipe this time to make the beef jerky. Typically we freeze it, take it out and let it thaw a little, slice it really thinly, then just season it up really well and throw it in the dehydrator. BUT we wanted to follow a recipe to see how it tasted. So we pulled the beef jerky recipe from the Primal Palate website: http://www.primalpalate.com/paleo-recipe/beef-jerky/ (PS..these people are AWESOME, if you haven’t seen their site or read they cookbooks ~ you should!)
We are just at the beginning stage. We froze our meat, let it thaw, cut it up and put it in with coconut aminos and garlic over-night.
Now it is all seasoned up and waiting until tomorrow morning to go in the dehydrator…..
so, stay tuned for the official review. 🙂 I will give you an update on the dehydrator and finished product tomorrow!!! Have an awesome Monday!
