In my efforts to get healthy, and stick with a healthy diet, I’ve come across many different types of jerky. The most common type of jerky is the one that comes in packages. There are also moist types of jerky, but I don’t recommend them. Most people prefer the dried kind. I’m going to go over a few of the more popular varieties, and their benefits and uses.
Smoked – This type of jerky has been cured after it’s been smoked over a period of time. This gives it a unique flavor and aroma. The price varies depending on what kind of smoker you get. It’s usually very affordable. Smoked jerky can be used for a variety of things, including: breakfast, snacks, sandwiches, soups, stews, salads, and wraps.
Cured – This kind of jerky has had its meat cured for a length of time. You can typically tell if it’s cured by tasting it. It will be softer, and the salt will be almost completely removed. This is the highest quality and is best for food that won’t go bad easily.
Cone – These jerky strips come in two different forms. Flat, and rod. Both are excellent, but the flat is usually used more often due to it’s cost. The rod kind is great if you’re going to use it a lot. They cost slightly more, but the added benefit of not having to cut the jerky into strips makes up for the slightly higher price.
Flakes – These types of jerky are cut into very fine pieces. Some have even been ground to make them even fluffier. There is a strong smell when you eat these jerky products. It’s a good snack to have on hand, or for packing food as a picnic snack.
Shortening – These are very similar to flakes, except they’re cut into pieces instead of being flat. This makes them much spicier than other types of jerky. Because of the nature of shortening, some people like to eat these products cold. This is especially nice when making jerky meat for a hot day.
Seasoning – This is a type of jerky that offers different types of spices to add to the jerky. Depending on what you want to put into the jerky, this can be the best for you to buy. Some enjoy the taste of Cayenne pepper, while others enjoy the taste of bacon. It’s a personal preference thing. Most people will find that the taste of different spices varies, and the best way to find out what you like is to try them all.
There are so many different jerky products available. If you’re looking for the best food, then this would be it. Not only is it healthy, and high in protein, but you can also add many flavors to it to make it even tastier. Be sure to try some of these jerky recipes for yourself and find out which one you like the best.
Sausage – This is a great snack to have available. There are many different cuts of sirloin that you can use. You can use all the fat you want, or just a pinch of the salt. Both are great for your health and great for your stomach. Sausage is one of the best meats for jerky products because it has a great texture and flavor.
Flax Seed – This is very nutritious and has a great taste. It is also very good for you and has been used by people for years as a healthy and alternative meat. Many people have switched over to jerky made with flax seed, and have noticed that their meat tastes and smells a lot better.
These are just a few of the options you have. There are so many different ways that you can make jerky. Just be sure that you are buying quality products that will last and meet all of your needs. There is nothing worse than getting jerky that will not hold up over time. Be sure to keep this in mind, and always make sure that you buy good products.
Overall, jerky can be a great source of protein. It has a great texture and taste. It is also very nutritious, so you will definitely be able to use this product to make sure that you are eating right. If you do not like jerky, you can also make your own, or try some of these other options, and find out what you think works best for you!
